This document provides a step-by-step process to be followed to set up a snap clone.

Snap Clone is a feature that enables the creation of Oracle database thin clones by leveraging file system snapshot technologies from either ZFS or Netapp. Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides a graphic interface to the process of making database thin clones. The feature that enables database thin cloning in Cloud Control is called Snap Clone and it is part of Cloud Control Self Service for data cloning.
Snap Clone is available via the feature Database as a Service (DBaaS). Snap Clone leverages the Copy-on-write (CoW) technologies available in some storage systems for database cloning.
In order to use Snap Clone, the source database should have its data files on a ZFS storage or Netapp array and have the storage managed by Cloud Control Agents installed on a LINUX machine.

Snap Clone offers role-based access, so a storage admin will have access to only those areas they are responsible for. It also limits the end user's access to source databases, clones and other resources.
