Course Description

 

Oracle 12c Real Application Clusters Part 1: Installation and Configuration training is a two (2) part series. In Part 1, you will learn how to install and configure Oracle’s 12c RAC environment and install Oracle’s Grid Infrastructure architecture. Topics covered include:

  • Creating ASM diskgroups
  • Installing Oracle Database software
  • Creating a RAC database
  • RAC administration tools such as SRVCTL,CRSCTL, and OCRCHECK
  • Oracle’s new FLEX ASM architecture.

 

Part 2 of this series, Oracle 12c Real Application Clusters Part 2: Performance Tuning, Administration and Backup, completes your Oracle 12c RAC education by covering these topics:

  • Backup and tuning the Oracle clustered environment
  • Oracle RAC and RAC One Node
  • Application continuity and its application in an Oracle 12c Database and applications
  • Extending the RAC and RAC consolidation
  • Using SRVCTL, CRSCTL, Sql Advisor, Real Time ADDM and optimizing the Cluster

 

The Oracle Database with Real Application Clusters (RAC) is and has been a top solution for thousands of customers worldwide. With Oracle Real Application Cluster 12c you now have a more flexible architecture that is able to fulfill numerous requirements using different configurations. It is also capable of providing the infrastructure to host other applications.
