Oracle 12c: Database Administration II Part 1


Course Description


In this Oracle database administration course, Part 1 of a two part online training series, you will explore how an Oracle Database applies 'cloud computing' to multiple computers to provide fast, efficient, secure data storage and manipulation that easily scales to thousands of clients. In this Oracle training, students learn how to perform complete and incomplete backup and recovery operations, utilize Oracles new FLEX ASM technology, and utilize Oracles new 12 tuning features such as heat map real time ADDM.


Once you have completed Oracle 12c: Database Administration II Part 1 the next course is this series is Oracle 12c: Database Administration II Part 2. The Oracle 12c: Database Administration II Part 2 course will continue to build your knowledge in backup and recovery operations, Oracle’s flashback technology, and advanced resource management.


In This Course You Will Learn How To:

  • Define Oracles Multitenant architecture
  • Manage Container Databases
  • Use Oracles’ FLEX ASM
