ORONSS - Implementing Oracle on NetApp Storage Systems

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.
