Oracle 11g: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration Accelerated Release 2

Duration : 5 Days (40 Hours)

Oracle 11g: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration Accelerated Release 2 Course Overview:

The course focuses on Oracle 11g cluster environment setup, configuration, and maintenance. It covers installation and configuration of Grid Infrastructure, Oracle Clusterware, and Automatic Storage Management in a Real Application Cluster (RAC) environment. Students will learn to enhance performance in existing Oracle clusters, manage and troubleshoot Oracle RAC environments, and gain hands-on experience in configuring, administering, and monitoring Oracle RAC clusters and the Oracle Grid Infrastructure. Additionally, the course addresses challenges related to deploying Oracle RAC in large-scale cluster environments. By course completion, students should be equipped with practical skills to effectively manage Oracle RAC and Grid Infrastructure environments.
