Oracle EM 12c Release 2 Now Available

Last week, on September 13 2012, Oracle announced general availability of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Release 2. The release introduces unique capabilities for deploying and managing business applications in an enterprise private cloud, such as Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), enhanced business application management, and integrated hardware-software management for Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Release 2 is now available on the OTN Download Page. This is the first major release since the EM 12c launch in October of 2011. This release contains many new features and enhancements in areas across the board. It is also the first ever Enterprise Manager release available on all platforms simultaneously.
