One of the major announcements at Oracle Open World last week was the launch of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, though I’m going to refer to the product as em for the rest of this blog.

While I was at Open World I tried a few times to get hold of the new Cloud Control software, but the hotel network wasn’t up to the job, so I had to wait until I got home.

As always it’s a little greedy on the memory front, with the recommendation for a small installation being 4G for the Cloud Control and 2G for the repository database. That’s not including the OS requirement. On the subject of the repository database, you can use a number of 10g and 11g versions, but anything before 220.127.116.11 requires additional patches, so I stayed with 18.104.22.168.
