We are excited to announce the availability of Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Database Control (OEM) for Amazon RDS for Oracle. Starting today, you can enable OEM Database Control for your DB instances with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console.

In conjunction with OEM, we are excited to announce support for Option Groups. This feature simplifies DB administration by enabling you to save a set of options and their configurations so you can easily apply them to other DB Instances in the future. To enable OEM for your RDS for Oracle DB Instance, simply create an Option Group, add OEM to it, and apply the Option Group to your DB Instance.

OEM Database Control is available at no additional charge for new and existing Amazon RDS for Oracle DB instances and all supported Oracle Editions: Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition, and Standard Edition One.

To learn more about Amazon RDS for Oracle and OEM and Option Groups, please see our documentation. If you are new to Amazon RDS, you can get started for free with our sixty-day free trial.
