EM 13c DBaaS : How to Deploy Database as a Service (Doc ID 2582043.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 29, 2019

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Cloud - Version 13.2.1.0.0 to 13.3.2.0.0 [Release 13c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

This document is to discuss how to deploy Database as a Service in Enterprise Manager (EM) Cloud Control, including relevant background information and required prerequisites.

About Database as a Service (DBaaS)

Enterprises need to support hundreds or even thousands of applications to meet growing business demands and this growth has driven up the cost of running and managing the databases under those applications. This puts a lot of stress on the IT budget and makes it harder to provide databases to support new requirements such as Web 2.0 applications or other emerging collaboration solutions or even to support other uses such as increased application testing.

Private Clouds enable customers to consolidate servers, storage, and database workloads onto a shared hardware and software infrastructure. By providing on-demand access to database services in a self-service, elastically scalable and metered manner, databases deployed as DBaaS on Private Cloud offer compelling advantages in cost, quality of service, and agility.

DBaaS extends the Oracle Private Cloud Management solution by automating the lifecycle of a database and allowing users to request database services through self-service portal. With this solution, IT Managers no longer have to perform mundane administrative tasks for provisioning databases. Database users can get instantaneous access to new database services through the Self Service Portal.

DBaaS in Enterprise Manager extends the capabilities of the Private Cloud by:

Increasing Quality of Service: IT organizations are not only trying to drive down costs, they are also looking at solutions that will simultaneously improve quality of service in terms of performance, availability and security. Cloud consumers inherently benefit from the high availability characteristics built into the Private Cloud. Organizations can also enforce a unified identity and security infrastructure as part of standardized provisioning. Thus, instead of bolting on security policies, these policies and compliance regulations are part of the provisioning process.

Enabling Faster Deployment: Building the Private Cloud infrastructure using standard building block components (for example, servers, CPUs, storage, and network), configurations, and tools, enables a streamlined, automated, and simplified deployment process.

Providing Resource Elasticity: The ability to grow and shrink the capacity of a given database, both in terms of storage size and compute power, allows applications the flexibility to meet the dynamic nature of business workloads.

Rapid Provisioning: Databases in a cloud can be rapidly provisioned, often by way of a self-service infrastructure, providing agility in application deployment. This reduces overall time in deploying production applications, development platforms or creating test bed configurations.
