What keeps database administrators awake at night and the search for the promised land

What keeps you and me awake at night? When I was a consultant for a Fortune 500 company in Southern California, we were getting beaten up to prove that databases were being backed up correctly and that disaster recovery would work. The truth of the matter was that we didn’t even have an accurate list of all the databases and databases would go down for days without anybody noticing which means that they were not even being monitored correctly. In fact, the yet unsolved NoCOUG murder mystery...(read more)

SQL Developer and Oracle DBaaS

Connecting to Oracle DBaaS from SQL Developer

Introduction

So, you have access to an Oracle DBaaS instance. How do you connect so that you can run use SQL Developer’s navigator or execute SQL and PL/SQL scripts? An earlier post showed how easy it is to create an Oracle DBaaS instance. This article will show you how to connect to DBaaS from SQL Developer.

When a DBaaS instance is created it is necessary to supply a private/public key pair to enable more-secure access via SSH (Secure Shell). By adjusting the DBaaS properties, you can also expose the CDB and PDB using the IP address without the protection of SSH (probably not a good idea for production use).

Oracle’s DBaaS Is Easy

Introduction

Oracle has been king of the database hill for many years. Now, they’re extending that dominance to the cloud. Oracle DataBase as a Service (DBaaS) uses the Platform as a Service (PaaS) model to enable deployment and management of Oracle database instances in the cloud.

Using Oracle’s DataBase as a Service (DBaaS) is quick and easy. In the example below I create and deploy an Oracle SE instance in about thirty minutes; about twenty of that was waiting for the system to complete provisioning. Have you ever been able to create a database and built the server space it required so simply? Once you have Oracle’s DBaaS, instance creation and deployment can be as easy as following a wizard-based process; no forms to fill out from you operations people and no hardware to purchase/allocate.

Oracle Cloud v/s Amazon Cloud

A few years ago, I taught an online class in Oracle Database administration for the University of Washington. Every student was given their own virtual machine in the Amazon cloud for the duration of the class, courtesy of Amazon. It was ridiculously simple to clone, start, stop, and destroy virtual machines using the Amazon CLI (command line interface). All students had full SSH and SQL*Net access to their virtual machines in the Amazon cloud. At that time, Oracle had a pitiful cloud offering: a single schema on Oracle Database 11g, a maximum of 50 GB of database storage, and no Oracle Net (SQL*Net) access
