Ever wonder why you can spin-up an Oracle Database environment from a public cloud provider in mere minutes yet it takes days to provision and configure one internally?

Oracle database provisioning and management using DevOps style processes may seem like mixing oil & water but it doesn't have to be that way.  In fact it's very possible without any additional at-cost tools.  The resulting automation leads to "efficiency", "standardization", and "consistency" - pillars of scalability for effectively managing large database environments.

This presentation reviews how organizations can implement database deployment and management automation as an underpinning technology for a DBaaS using common DevOps tools such as Ansible to: prepare servers, deploy Oracle software, create databases, implement DR configurations, and customize databases with site specific requirements in a highly automated manner.  Regardless of whether the host servers are physically on premise or in the public cloud.

The results are databases that are easier to manage as well as a greatly reduced service time for database provisioning requests.  Literally taking the implementation time down from days to less than one hour end-to-end!

Objective 1: Attendees will benefit from this presentation by:

* Learning about a maturity model to help DBAs and IT teams quantify their documentation level and implementation processes and consequently understand their internal risks and efficiencies.

Objective 2: Attendees will benefit from this presentation by:

* Learning about some commonly used DevOps "Automation" and "Orchestration" tools including the benefits of each and their place in the DBAs skill-set.

Objective 3: Attendees will benefit from this presentation by:

* Learning about implementation details on how a DBaaS can be set up using DevOps automation tools to provision servers and databases of various technologies (Oracle and MySQL).
