12.1.0.5 Hybrid Cloud Cloning

Last week’s release of 12.1.0.5 was a pleasant surprise for everyone out in the Oracle world.  This release hit the bulls-eye for another cloud target of Oracle’s, announcing the introduction of Enterprise Manager 12c’s offering a single pane of glass management of the hybrid cloud.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5 (12.1.0.5) – Just Born

em-12cOracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5 (12.1.0.5) was announced a few days ago. I woke up today and checked the interwebs and it’s actually available for download.

I must admit I’m a little nervous about the upgrade. I had a few bad times with upgrades in the early days of Grid Control and Cloud Control and that has left me with a little bit of voodoo lurking in the back of my mind. The last couple of upgrades have been really easy, so I’m sure it will be fine, but that voodoo…

I’ll download it now and do a clean install. Then do a couple of practice upgrades. If all that goes well, I’ll schedule a date to sacrifice a chicken, raise a zombie from the dead to do my bidding, then do the real upgrade.

Databases Running in the Cloud

cloudI’ve been playing around with running databases in the cloud recently. It’s quite simplistic stuff, just to get a feel for it and investigate the possibilities of using it for some projects at work. Here’s what I’ve got so far.

Why Automate Target Patching with Enterprise Manager 12c

Every job comes with tasks that no one likes to perform and database administration is no exception.  Patching is one of those necessary tasks that must be performed and when we are expected to do more with less everyday, the demands of patching another host, another agent, another application is often a task that no one looks forward to.  It’s not that it goes wrong, bu

A Most Simple Cloud: Is Amazon RDS for Oracle Right for You?

Amazon Web Services has offered Relational Database Service as part of their cloud offering since 2011.  These days, RDS provides easy to deploy, on-demand database-as-a-service for MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server.  When you compare it to essentially any other method of hosting and licensing Oracle, RDS seems to have a variety of really appealing qualities.

With RDS/Oracle, you don’t really need a DBA to take care of your database. With the notable exception of tuning, most of the DBA tasks, such as database creation and configuration, backups, upgrades, and disaster recovery are simply features of the service.

Set Up Exadata for Cloud Control 12.1.0.2

I recently helped set up an Exadata X2-8 Database Machine with the latest version of OEM Cloud Countrol (12.1.0.2). A few documents do exist for this process – the most useful of which are the Exadata Discovery Cookbook and the Setup Automation Kit. However, I found a few inconsistencies and problems; I think the existing documents I found were written on older versions of OEM and older versions of the tools. Also, there are some additional steps for older Exadatas which didn’t apply to my case.

Oracle and the cloud. A brief history…

This morning I read this post about Oracle Cloud from Tuula Fai.

What really annoys me about this post is I was at Oracle OpenWorld (about 3 years ago) when Larry was on stage telling us that Cloud was a meaningless fad. Fast forward to OOW 2012 and it would be easy to believe that Oracle invented the cloud, as I mentioned here. At OOW 2012 he openly stated Oracle started to write Fusion Apps for the cloud 7 years ago. Dude! That is not true. You initiated a program to rewrite Fusion Apps to be a browser-based replacement for EBS, which then happily coincided with the whole cloud thing at a later date. At least this post acknowledges that could have been an accident…
