I just got this email from Amazon:
Congratulations, your book “UNA LISTA DE VERIFICACIÓN PARA REALIZAR REVISIONES A LOS DISEÑOS DE MODELOS DE DATOS” is live in the Kindle Store and is currently enrolled in KDP Select. It is available for readers to purchase here.
If you are in Mexico, you can get the book here.
If you are in Spain, you can get it here.
Now, truth is I do NOT speak, read or write Spanish. But my good friend, and Oracle expert, Galo Balda does!
I am very grateful to Galo for putting in the effort to translate my little book so other data professionals around the world could read it in their native language.
BTW – Galo is speaking at OOW14 too…

Interesting info-graphics on Data-center / DB-Manageability
One of the key task that a DBA performs repeatedly is Provisioning of Databases which also happens to one of the top 10 Database Challenges as per IOUG Survey .
Most of the challenge comes in form of either Lack of Standardization or it being a Long and Error Prone Process . This is where Enterprise Manager 12c can help by making this a standardized process using profiles and lock-downs ; plus have a role and access separation where lead dba can lock certain properties of database (like character-set or Oracle Home location or SGA etc) and junior DBA's can't change those during provisioning .Below image describes the solution :
In Short :
- Its Fast
- Its Easy
- And you have complete control over the lifecycle of your dev and production resources.
I actually wanted to show step by step details on how to provision a 11204 RAC using Provisioning feature of DBLM , but today i saw a great post by MaaZ Anjum that does the same , so i am going to refer you to his blog here :

A quick note on how to install EMCLI which is used for various CLI operations from EM . I was looking to test some Database provisioning automation via EMCLI and thus was looking to setup the same .
To set up EMCLI on the host, follow these steps:
1. Download the emcliadvancedkit.jar from the OMS using URL https://<omshost>:<omsport>/em/public_lib_download/emcli/kit/emcliadvancedkit.jar
2. Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable and ensure that it is part of your PATH. You must be running Java 1.6.0_43 or greater. For example:
o setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/packages/j2sdk
o setenv PATH $JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
3. You can install the EMCLI with scripting option in any directory either on the same machine on which the OMS is running or on any machine on your network (download the emcliadvancedkit.jar to that machine)
java -jar emcliadvancedkit.jar client -install_dir=<emcli client dir>
4. Run emcli help sync from the EMCLI Home (the directory where you have installed emcli) for instructions on how to use the "sync" verb to configure the client for a particular OMS.
5. Navigate to the Setup menu then the Command Line Interface. See the Enterprise Manager Command Line Tools Download page for details on setting EMCLI.
Webcast: Database Cloning in Minutes using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Database as a Service Snap Clone
Since the demands
from the business for IT services is non-stop, creating copies of production
databases in order to develop, test and deploy new applications can be
labor intensive and time consuming. Users may also need to preserve private
copies of the database, so that they can go back to a point prior to when
a change was made in order to diagnose potential issues. Using Snap Clone,
users can create multiple snapshots of the database and “time
travel” across these snapshots to access data from any point
Join us for an in-depth
technical webcast and learn how Oracle Cloud Management Pack for Oracle
Database's capability called Snap Clone, can fundamentally improve the
efficiency and agility of administrators and QA Engineers while saving
CAPEX on storage. Benefits include:
- Agile provisioning
(~ 2 minutes to provision a 1 TB database)
- Over 90% storage
- Reduced administrative
overhead from integrated lifecycle management
