Clonetab eBusiness Suite cloning appliance provides complete end-to-end cloning solution for Oracle eBusiness Suite including customer’s instance specific steps. Clonetab provides user friendly interface with highly efficient, productive, secure, schedulable and easy to use cloning solution.

Manual Cloning – Frequent SLA misses, error prone, time consuming: The usage of home grown scripts and/or manual execution of sequential commands remain one of the most widely used ad-hoc cloning tools for Oracle e-Business Suite with majority of Oracle eBusiness customers. Moreover, Oracle e-Business Suite administration demands considerable amount of Apps DBAs time on tasks like refreshes and patching of e-Business suite instances. The huge number of manual steps involved in these types of tasks, makes the job very time-consuming and complicated.

It is based on standards, offers scheduling features and simplified UI, helps to avoid human errors, maintains audit trail, allows segregation of duties.

Clonetab offers features to optimize enterprise compliance efforts for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, FDA, Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), State Privacy Regulations and so on.

3. Linux Hardware Appliance - pre installed and configured on a physical Linux server or

4. Solaris Hardware Appliance - pre installed and configured on physical Solaris server, usually Fujitsu M-10 server sold by Oracle.
