Oracle is making enhancements to its enterprise management platform in order to help customers easily move Oracle Databases to the cloud and simplify management of hybrid cloud environments.
The new release adds functionality that automates database migration and provides a single dashboard that improves visibility, control, and management for hybrid IT environments.
“As organizations move to the cloud, they are faced with complex, time-consuming, manual, error-prone migration tasks,” said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, software development, Oracle. “Only Oracle provides Autonomous Cloud services, as well as the tools and migration services to help customers easily move to the cloud. Oracle Enterprise Manager removes the complexity with highly automated, guided migrations and provides a single dashboard for easily managing hybrid cloud environments.”
Oracle Enterprise Manager provides enhancements in three key areas to help enterprises more easily manage hybrid database environments, including:
- Intelligent Analytics
- Comprehensive Lifecycle Automation and Control
- Mobility and Security
Additionally, Oracle is expanding deployment and access choices for Oracle Enterprise Manager. DBAs can now deploy Oracle Enterprise Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using Oracle best-practices for high availability, capitalizing on Oracle Enterprise Manager features while enjoying the benefits of a cloud deployment.
Along with these updates, Oracle also announced that Oracle Enterprise Manager has been certified by the Center for Internet Security Benchmarks to compare the configuration status of Oracle Databases against the consensus-based best practice standards contained in the Oracle 12c Benchmark v2.1.0, Level 1- RDBMS.
Organizations that use Oracle Enterprise Manager can now ensure that the configurations of their critical assets align with the CIS Benchmarks consensus-based practice standards.
