This technical document describes best practices for managing Oracle databases with ONTAP Cloud in the Amazon Web Services cloud computing environment
ONTAP Cloud is more than just a storage system. It is a virtualized, consumption-based, on-demand storage system. There are no capital acquisition costs, no time spent awaiting shipment, and no effort to cable a new system. Individual ONTAP Cloud instances can be stopped, started, created, destroyed, and reconfigured as required. This approach opens up many options for configuring a database environment that would be impossible with physical hardware.
