Tools for Enterprise Database Management III

During this evaluation we are hearing over and over again from our customers their struggles with the following issues:
  • Should we run Oracle Grid Control that gives us a management interface that leverages management of advanced Oracle features such as RAC, Streams, Data Guard, Scheduler, etc. Grid Control does a great job of managing the advanced features of Oracle, yet the Oracle plug-ins for DB2 and SQL Server are not as advanced as other 3rd party tools.
  • Using 3rd party tools to manage heterogeneous environments that do a better job of managing a heterogenous environment, but are lacking in the advanced features of Oracle that Grid Control does a much better job of.
  • What do I do with my current investment of database management software and how do I integrate this software into my future database management plans.

Overall we are trying to address the right decison for customers trying to maximize the management of a heterogeous environment, the multi-tiered architectures and the applications.

After a lot of evaluation we have narrowed the scope to the following solutions:

  • Oracle Grid Control with Plug Ins for SQL Server and DB2
  • Quest
  • CA UniCenter Database Management
  • (small company solution)

We are evaluating a new solution that can give the benefits of what each company does best but it is going to require more testing and the beta software releasing for GA.

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
