In our previous blog Why you should manage cloud resources as an integral part of your business workflow, we described the challenge that customers face every day to reduce cloud costs while ensuring the right amount of resources to their business applications. We announced that a new solution pack is available on top of Workload Automation, provided by HCL Products and Platforms, including a set of new plug-ins to manage the provisioning and deprovisioning of virtual machines in the cloud, on as-needed basis. By orchestrating the application workflow and the workflow that manages the entire lifecycle of the virtual machines needed by the applications (including the actions: start, stop, snapshot, etc. …), Workload Automation can increase both business and infrastructure agility.

The schema of the Workload Scheduler is only changed by the product's installation and update but sometimes can be happen that automatic scripts or manually changes are voluntarily or involuntarily applied to the database.
This situation could reduce the Workload Scheduler performances and data consistency if, for example, an index is dropped or a foreign key is removed. If you have installed the Workload Scheduler on a DB2 or Oracle RDBMS, you can easily check the status of your database schema.
Please join our Workload Automation Community. This is a place to learn more, ask questions, and get insights on Workload Automation and Workload Scheduler to ensure long-term success with the products.
