  • Let’s take a closer look at data director, data director provides a single pane to monitor and manage 1000’s of database. The core capabilities of Data Director can be view from two perspectives.The first set of capabilities are targeted at the database users which are DBAs or application developers. We talked about a few slides ago on long lead time required for database operations to be carried out due semi-manual database operations, involvement from multiple IT teams. With data director, we have fully automated common database operations and cut across the silos of the IT organization. Now operations like provisioning, backup, restore, cloning and HA, can be done through a few clicks in a self service fashion. The result is for application developer to spend more time coding and less time waiting. This second set is are targeted at DBaaS operators, that provides IT with the necessary tools to enforce control and compliance over databases. With self-service to empower developers, at the same time, it’s also important for IT to maintain control. Data Director provides a myriad of features to allow IT to control resource usage, access and templates to maintain standardization, so you can feel comfortable empowering your developers.
