Oracle has introduced a new release of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, which provides a turnkey, full lifecycle DBaaS management solution for Oracle Multitenant, an option for Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition.
With this release, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c supports a broad range of choices for DBaaS delivery, including full database, instance clone, schema and pluggable DBaaS—enabling administrators to offer more choices to their users while also decreasing time and effort in service provisioning.
Database as a service can provide organizations with compelling benefits, including faster deployment, higher availability and lower operational complexity, observed Sushil Kumar, vice president Product Strategy and Business Development, Oracle. “With the new release of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, customers can quickly deploy pluggable database as a service solutions that realize the advantages of Oracle Database 12c’s new multitenant architecture.”
The new capabilities combined with existing management capabilities for Oracle Exadata Database Machine, will enable customers to rapidly deploy scalable DBaaS environments. Additionally, new optimizations to Oracle Real Application Testing enable faster verification of routine database administrator operations directly on mission critical production private clouds.
According to Oracle the benefits enabled by the new release of Enterprise Manger are considerable since consolidating on Oracle Database 12c’s multitenant architecture requires planning, migration, and testing of new and existing applications as customers move to DBaaS. Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c facilitates the consolidation with its automation capabilities, ranging from planning, setup, test, self-service capabilities, metering and chargeback, monitoring, managing, and optimizations for Oracle Database 12c’s multitenant option.
