Oracle Database 12c: RAC Administration training explains the Oracle RAC database concepts in details. The training covers the concepts and practical approach to explain the Oracle RAC database architecture, its installation, configuration, and administration. The participants will learn how to take the backup and provide recovery. How to manage high availability of connections and continuity in the applications is also explained during the training sessions.

At the end of the Oracle Database 12c: RAC Administration training course, you will inculcate the following skills:

  • Understand the characteristics of Clusterware  and Flex cluster
  • Define Oracle RAC, its storage solutions, architecture and other details
  • Install, configure, administer, upgrade, and patch Oracle RAC
  • Maintain backup and recovery in RAC at the time of failure  and later on restore
  • Describe how Grid Plug and Play affects Clusterware
  • Explain the necessity of global resources and work on Globally Managed Resources, Library Cache Mangement, Row Cache Management, Buffer Cache management and other associated tasks
  • Work on the high availability of the services in RAC environment
  • Illustrate the monitoring and tuning of RAC
  • Explain the concept of Application Continuity (AC) along with its architecture and working
  • Describe Quality of Service (QoS) management
  • Work on RAC One Node
