Automate: The features like target instance information retention options like db links, DB Directories, user passwords, parameter files and so on and allow user to automate most of the refresh sub-tasks. The base module offers features such as role based security & segregation of duties, password encryption, scheduler and so on.

Customize your refreshes: The custom scripts option facilitates adding subtasks to meet enterprise custom cloning needs.

Implementation Modes: Clonetab appliance for cloning Oracle database is available in four forms:

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.
