WAKEFIELD, R.I., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SkillBuilders announced today that V1.1.2 of "ALATO", A Lightweight Administration Tool for Oracle Database, is now available at www.skillbuilders.com/alato. While previous versions supported Linux and Oracle Database Standard and Enterprise Editions, Version 1.1.2 contains support for:
- Windows, Linux and any UNIX supporting a bash shell.
- Oracle Database Editions Enterprise, Standard and Express (XE)
- Oracle Database Versions 11g R2 and 12c
- APEX Versions V4 and V5
ALATO on Oracle Database Express Edition is free.
ALATO is the first commercial Application Express ("APEX") application written for the DBA. It is "the APEX App for DBAs".
ALATO is essential for:
- ISV's that embed Oracle Database within their application where OEM is not available
- 12c Standard Edition customers who need more features than available with "DB Express". (DB Control has been discontinued in 12c.)
- Enterprise Edition customers who don't require Cloud Control
In addition to standard administrative functions found in all "DBA" tools, ALATO provides essential functionality that other tools simply do not have:
- Scheduled Database Duplication (Clones)
- Scheduled APEX Application and Workspace Backups
- Metric Threshold Alerts and Notifications, even with Standard Edition and Express Edition
- Reporting and Management of ASM Storage
"ALATO will give Oracle technologists - even non-DBA's - the ability to schedule backups, copies (clones) and manage Oracle Databases. We felt the addition of ALATO for XE is important because of the ever-increasing popularity of XE," said David Anderson, Founder and President of SkillBuilders. Anderson added, "a lot of people have asked us about the name ALATO. Besides an acronym for 'a lightweight administration tool for Oracle Databases,' ALATO is the Italian word for 'winged.' We thought it fit nicely, as in 'A DBAs Wingman!"
