Achieving Extreme Performance Across the Oracle Exadata Lifecycle

From testing and deployment to monitoring and maintenance, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c is helping organizations achieve extreme performance across the entire Oracle Exadata lifecycle.

To achieve this, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c provides automated database diagnostics, tuning, and self-management—all within a single, centralized management console.

Two new white papers, Managing Oracle Exadata with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c and Oracle Exadata Discovery Cookbook detail the ways Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c optimizes each phase of the process.

Setup and Monitoring
Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c makes it extremely easy to discover Oracle Exadata. “Setup can be done in a matter of minutes,” says Deba Chatterjee, principal product manager at Oracle. Using guided steps and procedures for setup and discovery, as outlined in the white paper Oracle Exadata Discovery Cookbook, administrators can use Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to proactively monitor and manage Oracle Exadata targets and components.

Once discovery and setup is complete, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c provides a unified view of Oracle Exadata hardware and software—including deep insight into the health and performance of all components, from servers and switches to storage cells and databases.

Testing
Before going live with your application, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, along with Oracle Real Application Testing, makes it very easy to completely understand the application’s performance and take any appropriate actions to mitigate risks—from creating secure test environments to performance validation.

“Not only can you understand how your applications will perform on Oracle Exadata, but Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c also ensures a worry-free application migration to Oracle Exadata," says Chatterjee.

Managing
An integrated view of Oracle Exadata’s hardware and software components allow DBAs to navigate from the database performance page to the Oracle Exadata system health page.

To ensure optimal performance, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c includes comprehensive tools for
  • Database performance analysis
  • Automatic SQL tuning
  • Real-time SQL monitoring
Maintaining
Once applications are live on Oracle Exadata, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c provides tools to maintain configuration compliance, apply patches, and proactively resolve issues—whether they involve hardware, software, or both.

In addition to patch automation and configuration compliance, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c includes an advanced fault diagnostic infrastructure for preventing, detecting, diagnosing, and resolving problems. And Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center offers a single console for management of the entire infrastructure stack—from firmware, operating systems, and virtual machines, to servers, storage, and network fabrics.
