Test & Development as a Service (TDaaS)
Test & Development as a Service (TDaaS) is a database service which allows IT teams to quickly provision test and development databases to meet their short and long term project requirements. Redcentric's Oracle TDaaS service provides on-demand, self-service access to database services that are elastically scalable. Access to these resources provides businesses with improved productivity, increased agility and faster product development time scales, all on a pay-as-you-use basis.
Redcentric's Cloud Platform (Platform as a Service or PaaS) provides a shared and elastically scalable platform for the delivery of test and development databases. The TDaaS service runs on a Oracle Engineered Systems platform that is hosted and managed by Redcentric within its UK data centres. This platform allows customers to provision their short to long term test and development database project requirements through a self-service portal.
How does the database platform work?
Each test and development database is consumed in Database Units (DBU) with each DBU providing:
- ½ processing core (¼ compute and ¼ storage)
- 4GB RAM
- 400GB storage
- 5Mbps Internet access bandwidth
The database can be provisioned with the following options:
- Security / Encryption
The use of Oracle Engineered Systems, and specifically Oracle Exadata Database Machine, provides an optimised, scalable and highly available platform from which to deliver Oracle Databases. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is engineered to be the highest performance and most available platform for running the Oracle Database. Built using industry-standard hardware from Sun, and intelligent database and storage software from Oracle, the Exadata Database Machine delivers extreme performance for all types of database workloads including Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), Data Warehousing (DW) and consolidation of mixed workloads.
