Setting Up Chargeback in EM 12.1.0.4

Some time back, I posted a blog entry about Metering and Chargeback in Enterprise Manager, where I covered the basic capabilities of the Chargeback Application. It’s taken me some time to get back to the promised followup blog post on setting up Chargeback, what with Oracle Open World getting in…

Private Cloud and Lifecycle Management with EM12c at OOW14

Yet again the monster that is Oracle Open World is about to take over San Francisco. I won’t be making it this year, but considering we had something like 60,000 attendees last year I’d hate to see what the numbers are gonna be this year! To try and make it…

Migrating to ASM

On the Maximum Availability Architecture website, there’s a paper on <awful term alert>Best Practices</awful term alert> for Database Consolidation. It’s a great paper, as you’d expect from the MAA guys (well, apart from that awful term alert I had to add! ). Since database consolidation is an area I work…

Using the Self Service Portal with Schema as a Service in EM 12.1.0.4

In a previous blog post, I covered setting up Schema as a Service for schema level consolidation. In this post I’m going to cover how to use the Self Service Portal with Schema as a Service in EM 12.1.0.4. Just as it was in my posting on using the Self…

Schema Consolidation in EM 12.1.0.4 – Setup

Schema as a Service provides database consolidation by allowing administrators to host multiple application schemas within a single database. This offers Database as a Service to possibly hundreds of application users without creating database sprawl. Users can perform day-to-day actions like provisioning, monitoring, and backup, all from a single Self…

Plagiarism and Posting

I received an interesting question as a comment on another post (which I’ll approve as soon as I post this one) and I thought it was interesting enough to add a completely separate post on my thoughts. In essence, the comment was along the lines of this: “With so much…
