Cloning databases on ODAs with gDBClone

Join this workshop to find out how numerous Viscosity customers leverage gDbclone!

Managing database test/QA and development (test/QA & dev) environments can be challenging and costly, in time and resources. Production databases often require 3-5 or more copies for various types of test, QA, pre-production, hot-fix, and development (lower environments) purposes. Each copy of a database consumes significant storage space and are typically recycled or refreshed on a periodic basis. 

Refreshing and managing the lower environment databases does not have to be complex or time consuming. gDBClone is a tool that was developed to provide a simple and efficient method for cloning a database for test and dev environments. gDBClone leverages Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System (ACFS) snapshot functionality to create space efficient copies of databases and manage a test and dev database life cycle.

In this workshop, attendees will learn how to leverage gDBClone on ODAs to achieve operational efficiencies, reduce OpEx, save storage costs, and refresh lower environments almost immediately leveraging ACFS snapshots and sparse database provisioning.

Register to take advantage of this exciting ODA Hands-On Workshop. Learn about the ODA appliance manager.  Virtual seating is limited.
