gDBClone performs the following key functions:
» Clone: Creates a clone database (as Primary or as Standby) from a production database copying the DB to the target test and dev cluster
» Snap: Creates sparse snapshots of the DB to be used for test and development
» Convert: Converts a given database to RAC (Real Application Cluster) OneNode, RAC or from non-CDB (non-container database) to a PDB (pluggable database) of a given CDB
» ListDBs: Lists the cloned databases and its snapshots
» DelDB: Deletes cloned databases and/or its snapshots
» ListHomes: Lists the available oracle home
» SYSPwF: Creates an encrypted password file
» listSnaps: List the available ACFS snapshots
» delSnap: Deletes ACFS snapshot
» SYSPwF: Creates an encrypted password file

gDBClone is utilized to provision sparse space efficient copies of databases (“gDBClone snap”). These copies may be deployed for test and dev purposes. Only small incremental storage is required by the snapshots after the initial creation of the master copy.
