Over the years I have created a number of Blog posts and supporting videos, however over time its easy to forget what’s in your back-catalog of videos.
To help you and also myself navigate to my video content I have created this page as an easy to use index to all my YouTube videos.
If you have never tried CloneDB, give the below a watch, in this video I demonstrate an RMAN backup to a Pure Storage FlashBlade and then create database clones using CloneDB on a dNFS sparse file system all hosted on a FlashBlade.
Oracle ASM Filter Driver (ASMFD)
If you have not yet migrated to using the Oracle ASM Filter Driver, you may find the below of interest. In this video I show how ASMFD can be used to release space back to your all-flash storage array.
Automation with Ansible
In this video I will show an Ansible playbook can orchestrate a Pure Storage Snapshot, replication to a second array and then a database refresh.
My next (trimmed) video shows how Ansible can playbook can automate Oracle EBS R12.2 cloning.
Below are two videos showing how a WebUI can be used to provide a Self-Service solution to developers and testers to run Ansible Playbooks on-demand or via a schedule.
This video shows me using the Pure Storage Ansible modules to automate FlashArray WWN assignments.
Copy Data Management
The next three videos demonstrate how Pure Storage REST API’s can be used to perform multiple CDM (Copy Data Management) functions.
The next videos demonstrates how a series of simple bash scripts can be used to automate the refresh of a development database from Production in a few minutes using Pure Storage crash consistent snapshots.
