July 2014- Cloud computing is becoming an integral part of many companies' business and technology strategies. There are many different delivery models. But two foundational services are essential for cloud computing to become a strategic part of the overall computing infrastructure: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for access to compute and storage resources in an on-demand model and Platform as a Service (PaaS), which sits on top of IaaS and enables you to build applications to support ...
Anywhere there is a database, there will eventually be a need to make a copy, or clone of it. For example, a copy of the production database may be cloned for development testing, or reporting, or simply for backup. Or a QA environment may need to restore an environment to specific point in time to perform testing. The cloning process is generally tedious, time consuming, and subject to errors.
