During a large in-house cloud project with a large amount of developers and teams, Oracle was chosen to be one of the main data backends. This led to a huge demand of databases and schemata and thus resulting in lot of work for us as the DBA-Team.

Our "classical" approach to handle these requirements didn't work in this case efficiently enough. Therefore we needed an optimised solution to handle all these in shorter time and with less effort. We had chosen Ansible, RAC and the Oracle Multitenant Option to be the components to solve this.

This Talk highlights the challenges, as well as the solution we had implemented. It will be shown what the current status quo of the implementation is and if the improvements could be reached.

Running out of support, security concerns, new features, coming operating system or hardware changes.... there is a long and versatile list of potential reasons for our customers, to change the version of their running Oracle Databases. The "choice" of situations, challenges and options for changing the version, is at least as long and as versatile as the reasons are.

Oracle ACE Director Martin Klier will deliver an unveiled overview about his adventures with logical dependencies, human sensitivities, technical skulduggeries and license traps. All this happens, when one or multiple databases are to be migrated or upgraded to a new version in a controlled fashion. For A as in AIX, L like Linux, S like Solaris, V like Virtualization, W twice in Windows ... there was trouble, there was a solution, and there was a new experience!
