Oracle Database Automates Database Upgrades with AutoUpgrade

Oracle Database AutoUpgrade enables you to upgrade one or many databases without human intervention, all with one command, and with a single configuration file.

AutoUpgrade enables you to upgrade one or many Oracle Database instances at the command-line, using a single command and a single configuration file. AutoUpgrade runs the preupgrade tasks, performs automated fix-ups where needed, runs the database upgrade, and finishes by completing post-upgrade tasks. It includes automatic retry and fallback, the option to schedule upgrades for future points in time, and the ability to set, change, or remove initialization parameters as desired. Using AutoUpgrade can save you time and money by enabling you to upgrade hundreds of databases with one command, and avoid the need for high-maintenance upgrade solutions.
