In this course you learn how to implement an Oracle Database solution in a NetApp storage environment. Through lecture and hands-on exercises, you practice discovering, planning, designing and provisioning an Oracle environment. In this class you install Oracle, configure an Oracle database; use several solutions to back up Oracle databases, and restore an Oracle database. The material of this class is not meant to provide an exhaustive study of Oracle. The purpose of this class is to practice the specific steps of the deployment and administration of an Oracle database using NetApp clustered Data ONTAP and NetApp integrated data protection technology.

Who should attend

Anyone familiar with Oracle database servers and NetApp storage systems is considered a typical student of this course.


Course Objectives

By the end of this course, you should be able to:
