    1 Introduction

    The NetApp Cloning Plug-in for Oracle Multitenant Database is a cloud-class storage application that

    seamlessly integrates with the Oracle Multitenant option for Oracle Database 12c to manage the

    duplication of pluggable databases (PDBs), which are provisioned from a NetApp storage controller. This

    integration leverages NetApp FlexClone technology, which allows you to develop and test applications

    more quickly by creating instant, space-efficient clones of PDBs that shorten design cycles and improve

    service levels. The NetApp Cloning Plug-in is a joint effort from Oracle and NetApp that facilitates the

    management of PDBs and uses the Oracle Multitenant container database (CDB) architecture, which

    enables you to easily consolidate multiple databases, without modifying the settings of the application.

    1.1 Purpose and Scope of the Document

    This technical report is an overview and a step-by-step guide for deploying the NetApp Cloning Plug-in for

    Oracle Multitenant Database with NetApp storage using Oracle Direct NFS (DNFS). It does not provide a

    comprehensive overview of the features available with Oracle Multitenant Database 12c and should not

    be used as a replacement for the Oracle Multitenant Database 12c official documentation.

    1.2 Intended Audience

    This technical report is intended for the following audiences:

     Oracle and NetApp partners

     Technical decision makers

     Database administrators

     Storage administrators

     Product and IT infrastructure managers

    Readers should be familiar with Oracle Database 12c and its architecture, NetApp Data ONTAP

    operating in 7-Mode, and clustered NetApp Data ONTAP.

    2 Business Benefits

    The NetApp Cloning Plug-in for Oracle Multitenant Database offers the following business benefits:

     Easy installation, configuration, management, and maintenance

     Faster time to market for application development

     Multitenant database architecture for business applications

     Flexible backup and recovery

     Increased resource utilization

     Simple consolidation without having to change applications: Plug and unplug as needed

     Enables private cloud deployments built on Oracle Database 12c

     Empowers the DBA with cloning capabilities

    3 Technical Benefits

    The NetApp Cloning Plug-in for Oracle Multitenant Database offers the following technical benefits:

     Clones a PDB by using NetApp FlexClone technology from the Oracle Database 12c SQL command line, Oracle Cloud Control, or the PDB Apex Self-Service Provisioning application

     Supports directory structure and string pattern methodology to create cloned PDBs

     Provides rapid provisioning for accelerated deployment

     Consumes no additional space when a new PDB (clone) is created from an existing PDB

     Maximizes utilization of storage systems

     Enables application development and testing more quickly by creating instant, space-efficient clones of PDBs that shorten design and provision cycles that improve service levels

     Allows more database copies to be available to more people with minimal effect on performance
