Clonetab Appliance for Oracle eBusiness Suite New Instance Creation (NIC)

Automatic new instance creation for Oracle eBusiness Suite, securely

The reasons for creating new instance of Oracle eBusiness Suite (EBS), from a given EBS source instance, are myriad, ranging from creating new development environment, to having a backup for disaster recovery, to patching and testing, to upgrading to a new software version, to cloud migration. While creating new eBusiness Suite instance from a given source instance is a common IT practice, it can be time-consuming and expose your organization to unwanted security and compliance risks.

Homegrown scripts and manual execution of sequential commands remain the most prevalent way to create new EBS instances today. But these are time-intensive processes fraught with security and compliance issues such as lack of an audit trail, separation of duties, and unencrypted passwords.

eBsuiness Suite as a Service (eBaaS): Clonetab eBusiness Suite NIC appliance can completely automate your Oracle eBusiness Suite new instance creation from a given source, end-to-end, including the creation of application tiers. The eBusiness NIC appliance is designed with ease of use in mind and on a self-service mode non DBAs also will be able to create their new eBusiness Suite environments with simple mouse clicks. When used with CTClone, these databases take additional storage space only for write operations and perform similar to physical environments.

Clonetab NIC options for Oracle eBusiness Suite: Clonetab NIC can be used with base module or with our high-speed database virtualization module CTClone, while creating new instances of Oracle eBusiness Suite from a given source. As the CTClone option uses software based snapshots, thin provisioning, the NIC module can clone the new instances vary fast and at the same time offer substantial storage savings.

Automate and Customize your new instance creation process: The built-in features to execute pre, post, random scripts allow the users to meet the Enterprise automatic new eBusiness Suite creation requirements from a given source with exceptional flexibility. To meet the Enterprise New Instance Creation needs, the custom scripts option facilitates adding custom subtasks while creating new eBusiness Instances.

Retain source instance specific information: The Clonetab NIC appliance facilitates retaining source instance specific information such as users and their priveleges, schema passwords and so on.

Implementation Modes: Clonetab NIC module can be implemented in four ways:

1. As a virtual software appliance wherein the Clonetab provided ovf template can be imported in to VMWare or similar virtualization environments, as a virtual machine, which usually takes less than 20 minutes for bringing up the Clonetab server.

2. Installer version for installation on to Linux servers (OEL or RHEL) meeting pre-reqs.

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.
