Over the holidays I actually spent some time reviewing the newly released "Managing IaaS and DBaaS Clouds with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c". This book is a step-by-step tutorial filled with practical examples which will show readers how to configure and manage IaaS and DBaaS with Oracle Enterprise Manager. If you are a cloud administrator or a user of self-service provisioning systems offered by this Oracle product, this book is ideal for you. It will also help administrators who want to understand the available chargeback mechanisms.
Cloud computing has really transformed how enterprise software is written and deployed. Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c has been designed to work with the cloud platform and reduce downtime, while improving performance and productivity. You can quickly set up, manage, and support enterprise clouds. This practical, example-oriented guide untangles many of the complexities involved in setting up a complete cloud computing platform.
This book explores several methods of setting up IaaS and DBaaS using Oracle’s Enterprise Manager. Step-by-step, this guide will quickly familiarize you with the most important aspects of setting up a cloud platform. This book delves deep into the complexities surrounding cloud computing and comprehensively explores the approach that you need to take to build an effective infrastructure. You will start with a step-by-step approach to building an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and take an in-depth view of building a Database as a Service (DBaaS) model of cloud computing. Following on from this, you will learn how the chargeback mechanism works and how it can be configured for your needs. Next, you will also learn how to use a programmable interface to manage your cloud via APIs and web services.
