02 Feb 2014 Back Up a Thousand Databases Using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c [34676]
by Porus Homi Havewala

Porus writes, "Oracle has long supplied a powerful utility, Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), along with the database software install, which is used to backup and recover Oracle databases, either as a complete or incremental backup. The scripts are placed in a shell script wrapper at the Unix level, and then scheduled using the Unix cron job facility. These scripts need to be tested, verified and maintained.

While this task is manageable for one or two databases, the same task must be repeated with every new database or every new database server that is provisioned-and the time spent on setting up such backups increases correspondingly.

In this technical article, we will see how the DBA can set up and schedule RMAN database backups for thousands of databases using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c more easily and efficiently than the older, more time-consuming, manual method of performing Unix shell scripting and cron jobs for each database to be backed up..."

These bootable Solaris 11 images can be edited according to the environment.For an example, if you do not want to install some of the default packages from ISO which you have downloaded from oracle website,you can remove it and additional software or third party software can be added on top of the image.So the image is custom, re-distributable ISO or bootable USB image..."

16 Dec 2013 eWEEK 30: Unix Proves Staying Power as Enterprise Computing Platform [34199]
eWeek, November 22nd, 2013

"eWEEK 30: Unix remains a major server platform in enterprises and on the Internet three decades after PC Week started covering the computer industry.

Back in 1984 during the early days of PC Week, Unix was not a new operating system, but it was an operating system that was just beginning to take root in the mainstream of enterprise computing. Unix was first developed in 1969 at AT&T's Bell Labs. But it was during the mid-1980s when its commercial roots were first planted and IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Sun Microsystems began to sell Unix to customers..."
