CAT for Oracle version 3.0 has been officially released, and it’s delivering a host of features that customers using previous versions have been requesting. The most eye-opening of which is support for Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) databases! That’s right, with CAT for Oracle, you can now clone both single-instance and cluster databases in an automated, repeatable manner. Want to do nightly refreshes of your 40 TB production database to test environments? Setup CAT for Oracle and get that refresh done in seconds using the power of Pure Storage snapshots!

With every new version, Oracle introduces exciting features like Oracle Multitenant option, Oracle Active Data Guard Far Sync, information lifecycle management enhancements and new data types just to name a few. Customers wishing to take advantage of these and other new features will need to upgrade their existing databases, as well as migrate onto modern infrastructure to ensure high levels of performance.
