Take the pain out of cloning! Take the time out of cloning!
Learn how to duplicate (copy) an Oracle database in minutes – no matter how large – with Oracle DNFS.
Do you need to provide read-write clone databases for testing or development? Do you need to do it fast, simply, and with minimal disc space? This free Oracle Database Clone Tutorial will show you how.
Cloning databases can be slow, painful, and requires lots of disc space. Not any more. We can use copy-on-write technology to create as many independent clones as you want, all based on one backup of the source database. Creating a clone takes minutes, no matter how big the database is. The space used by each clone is only the space needed to record changes made within the clone (so initially, zero.) As far as your users are concerned, each clone is an independent database. They will have no idea that they are all sharing a common source.
This facility (based on Oracle’s Direct NFS technology) was introduced in release 22.214.171.124 and formally documented in 12.1.x.
