Oracle® 11g Database Administration

 

 

 

Oracle 11g Database Administration Training Class Summary

A Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) is a software system that allows you to create and manage a Relational Database. Minimum requirements for such a system are defined by both ANSI and ISO. Database administration involves installation and management of a database, which includes security, performance, backup / recovery, and reliability. Oracle Database 11g is designed to automate many of the functions previously managed by an Oracle Database Administrator manually.

This class will develop the key fundamental skills necessary to be an Oracle DBA. Students will design and create a server using the Optimal Flexible Architecture (OFA), configure logical and physical structures, set up database and user security, add and administer users, and monitor and tune main server areas. Each student will create a toolkit of administration scripts for database management and tuning by the end of this class.

Audience: Non-Oracle database administrators, application developers, and system administrators.

Prerequisites: Introduction to Oracle 11g, or at least six months working in an Oracle technical environment. An understanding of relational database concepts, SQL, and PL/SQL programming skills are required. A solid understanding of Oracle schema is recommended.

Class Length: 5 days
