Cloning Production Databases into Test Environments

The goal was to give the development and testing teams the ability to create test databases as fast as possible without a database administration team. I developed this application in response to that need (for creating test databases from production databases).

Project Details:
• Copy up to 50 terabyte databases from production to test environment with low usage of network and storage resources
• The application installs, updates, and configures Oracle Grid and RDBMS software on test servers.
• Used on more than 60 test databases.
