Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Database Cloud Service

The DBaaS Database Administrator role is created for the Oracle Database Cloud Service team to work on the environments. When the Database Cloud Service account is first set up, the service administrator is given this role. User accounts with this role must be added before anyone else can access and use Database Cloud Service. The identity domain administrator can create more Database Cloud Service administrators by creating user accounts and assigning them the DBaaS Database Administrator. Administrative tasks are generally provided using DBas role on the database technology.
  • Oracle Cloud provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). These services are used to build, deploy, integrate, and extend applications in the cloud.
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Data as a Service (DaaS)
  • Licensing cost compared to other cloud platforms.
  • Billing on Hosted Environment per hour, OCPU per hour, block volumes, object storage, etc.
  • Costing & maintenance, patching.
  • Security & TDE cycles.
  • Backups & recovery.
  • The features are complemented by database lifecycle management features, like configuration management, performance management, patch automation, etc. which make the solution complete from a DBaaS administrator’s perspective as well.
  • Manager 12c covers all the major use cases for DBaaS, which yield significant business benefits and high ROI.
Yes - I am a member of the Northern California Oracle User Group and All India Oracle User Group.

The rich cloud management features not only lends maturity to any private cloud design of an enterprise it also lends the power of 'copy exact' i.e. bringing the error-free assembly line production and standardization into a hitherto majorly human-driven process. Enterprise Manager 12c determines the most efficient way to utilize hardware computing resources after transparently considering many factors related to the resources referenced and the conditions specified in any self-service request. This automated setup of the service catalog, intelligent placement of software resources, single click provisioning and cloning, followed by rich metering and chargeback go a long way in providing a predictive model around the on-demand consumption pattern of databases in an enterprise-class, private cloud environment. The features are complemented by database lifecycle management features like configuration management, performance management, patch automation, etc which make the solution complete from a DBaaS administrator's perspective as well. As we saw above, Enterprise Manager 12c covers all the major use cases for DBaaS, which yield significant business benefits and high ROI.
