Product Overview

  • Features

    Oracle Fleet Patching and Provisioning has a rich set of features that helps keeping under control the lifecycle of the database fleet. From provisioning new clusters to patching and upgrading databases, all the common operations that are usually time-consuming and complex can now be achieved with a single command. This standardized way of managing the database lifecycle reduces dramatically the human labor and increases the efficiency and predictability of the operations. Both the powerful command line and the embedded RESTful APIs can be easily integrated with CI/CD pipelines, orchestration frameworks or configuration management tools that are broadly used by every company embracing the DevOps methodology.

  • Architecture

    Oracle Fleet Patching and Provisioning (FPP) is a feature of Oracle Grid Infrastructure (GI), hence, the components that form the FPP Server are managed automatically by GI.

    FPP maintains a space-efficient repository of software, more precisely ‘gold images’ – standardized software homes that can be provisioned to any number of target machines.

    Gold images can be organized in to series, allowing you to create groupings that track the evolution of a release, with different series for different tailored solutions such as Database patch bundles for specific applications. 

  • Supported Platforms

    Oracle Fleet Patching and Provisioning supports a wide array of configurations and Oracle Database and Grid Infrastructure versions.
