About Deploying Oracle Database Using Rapid Home Provisioning

You can use Rapid Home Provisioning to provision Oracle Database software.

With Rapid Home Provisioning, you create, store, and manage templates of Oracle homes as images (called gold images) of Oracle software, such as databases, middleware, and applications. You can make a working copy of any gold image and then you can provision that working copy to any node in the data center or cloud computing environment.

You can use Rapid Home Provisioning to provision, patch, and upgrade single-instance databases running on Oracle Restart, on clusters, or on single, standalone nodes. These may be on nodes with or without Oracle Grid Infrastructure installed.


Rapid Home Provisioning is not supported on Microsoft Windows and HP-UX Itanium systems.
