  • BMC Database Automation Cloud Database Services Extend BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management to automatically create ready-to-use database services in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.


    Key Benefits

    Automates deployment of complex enterprise databases in the cloud

    Supports public, private, and hybrid cloud environments

    Integrates with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management

    Delivers cross-platform provisioning, patching, and upgrades for simple and complex databases

    Deploys changes across multiple databases and clusters

    Business Challenge Enterprises are looking to cloud computing for self-service provisioning, efficiency, repeatability, and accountability. Currently, building and managing databases on public or private cloud infrastructures requires a great deal of manual effort on the part of the database administrator (DBA) to properly install, configure, patch, and load database servers. While database vendors may offer prebuilt, preconfigured virtual machines, the challenge remains in transforming that 'plain-vanilla' database into something end users can actually start using.

    With public or private clouds, companies need a solution that creates immediately useful database services that conform to enterprise requirements, while also reducing demands on DBAs.

    The BMC Solution BMC Database Automation creates ready-to-use database servers even complex Oracle RAC servers quickly and automatically. Unlike other solutions that require DBAs to maintain scripts to deploy, patch, configure, and load database servers, BMC Database Automation, part of the BMC BladeLogic Automation Suite, delivers comprehensive out-of-the-box content that handles the majority of operations required to stand-up a useable database server. It even handles special cases present in cloud environments.

    The integration of BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and BMC Database Automation lets business units focus on defining their particular standard for cloud database services. Because BMC Database Automation has the know-how to successfully execute the user request, enterprises can maximize their return on investment in cloud automation by removing the need to create and maintain libraries of scripts to implement cloud database services.

    Support for Hybrid Cloud Delivery Delivering new or changing existing cloud services involves more than just managing instances of an operating system (OS). Initial clouds are often conceived with reasonably homogeneous x86 environments in mind. However, over time, cloud diversity creeps in from many places. Multiple hypervisors are increasingly being co-mingled in data centers, and cloud services often span physical and virtual servers, where virtual servers may be privately managed or provisioned in public clouds.

    BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management can provision, configure, patch, and manage dynamic, full-stack implementations in public, private, or hybrid cloud environments.

    BMC Database Automation extends BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management to instantiate, patch, configure, and maintain database servers per user specifications and comply with enterprise policies from initial provisioning to service retirement.
