In part 1, Four Cornerstone has touched on what database as a service (DBaaS) is, and how it benefits your organization. We have also talked briefly about the software you need to deliver database as a service to the users in your company.
Now let us take a look at how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to deliver this service to your enterprise.
Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c helps you manage the entire cloud lifecycle, and includes tools for monitoring, capacity planning and chargeback features, and self-service provisioning.
You could also benefit from using the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Management Pack for Oracle Database, which lets your database administrators configure access according to different roles, set up zones, determine which resources are pooled, and set up chargeback plans as well as service catalogs. This could also help you set up a self-service portal for your users depending on their access levels.
You can configure how much resources each person or department would be able to reserve or use, while your users log into the portal and get the database assets that they need without having to bother your IT about it. They only need to go through a simple process.
Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c also allows you to put up applications and databases instances and tweak the environment depending on your own needs. Using a few basic tiers, you can create your own business catalog in no time.
The software also allows you to manage your cloud resources and treat them like business services. It allows you to control the database’s resources, the network, the CPU resources, and others. You will be able to get usage metrics that help you see usage patterns, which in turn allows you to plan and budget more accurately. It can also help you pinpoint underutilized assets, as well as making it very simple to allocate CPU resources between two databases.
Database consolidation with database as a service is easier with Oracle Multitenant, which allows you to manage several databases as if you are working with only one. It gives way for a much simpler database environment while also giving your individual databases the resource control and isolation that you get with separate databases. You can use pluggable databases to put up several cloud environments.
But before getting all these up and running, you should understand for a new database as a service system would work in your current IT environment. Consider your overall enterprise IT strategy and architecture.
Your enterprise architecture can help structure your database as a service efforts via a series of overlapping iterations. In short, your new database as a service systems would affect your current operations, as well as the business and technical aspects of your company.
