Testing is my number 1 reason for cloning a database. Nothing should ever be put into production unless it was tested first. Frequent (weekly/monthly) clones ensure that your test environment stays current with production.
P Consider the environment. Please don't print this e-mail unless you really need to.

There are other methods or products like dataguard for database failover. The main reason to make a clone (copy) of a database is to test something on it that you can't do on production.

Hope every one is doing great this Morning.
As I am a new DBA, a simple question strikes me this morning. What is the main purpose of cloning a database. Is the main purpose of the database is to provide a database failover ?? If that is case then we can go for a dataguard. Then why should we clone. ??
Temples & Softwares are more or less the same, first we build them and then we pray ;)
