Snap Cloning Databases on Exadata [44148]
Using Enterprise Manager

Subhadeep Sengupta blogs, "Historically, Exadata has mostly been deployed for heavy, production workloads, leaving cheap commodity hardware and third-party storage to perform as infrastructure for Development and Testing. From the viewpoint of Enterprise Manager, we have seen customers clone production databases running on Exadata to secondary storage such as ZFS Storage Appliance or even third-party NAS or SAN for the purpose of testing. Customers mainly used RMAN (with or without Enterprise Manager) to clone the databases. While the master clones (often referred to as Test Master) could be further cloned via storage efficient snapshots, there were significant limitations to the approach.

First of all, the testing on non-like systems from Exadata (both compute and storage) often yielded erroneous inferences. Second, both the compute and storage on existing Exadata racks often remained underutilized. Most surveys establish that there are several Dev/Test copies for every Production database, and leaving Dev/Test outside the realm of Exadata can only yield partial usage of engineered systems. .."
