My Google-fu may be weak, but I haven't seen a hiera backend for Oracle. Has anyone created one yet? All our DBA's are Oracle, and while there's a desire to have a postgres install, it will be awhile still before they'll be ready to support it with a replicated fall-back node. While Oracle I could have a schema up and available rather quickly in an existing DB.

Sorry for the previous answer. Couple of options.

However in your case it might be simpler to use something like hiera-rest which would be an HTTP service in front of Oracle. Might be useful to have a middle layer to build custom queries, default, etc to the db layer.

That looks to be to manage the Oracle install, actually looking for a hiera backend similar to this for hiera-mysql
