Have credit card, need database? In this talk, I'll show you how to deploy your own Oracle 11gR2 sandbox with a single keystroke (and I don't mean RDS). Along the way, we'll learn about Infrastructure-as-a-Service with boto, provisioning tools like fabric, and Oracle response files. When we're done, we'll have a repeatable, ten-minute process that can deliver a server as cheap as $5/day or as powerful as 40k IOPS and 2.6GB/s throughput. More importantly, we'll understand what the big deal about IaaS and automated provisioning really is, and how enterprise products like Oracle can still fit comfortably in the space.
