Oracle Training Overview|
This Oracle 11g courseware training guide book will consider the latest and most advanced elements of a robust backup and recovery strategy for the Oracle database platform. It is intended to allow a database administrator to become certified as a backup and recovery specialist.
Oracle Training Course Objectives
As the complexity and sophistication of the enterprise-wide database platform for an organization grows, so does the need for a state-of-the-art backup and recovery strategy. Recovery of contemporary databases goes far beyond the relatively limited tasks of years ago. Traditional strategies involved protecting data against failure, and in the event of a failure, recovering all the lost data.
Today one needs to employ far more elaborate techniques. Regulatory compliance requirements call for data preservation through archival backups. Application testing and migration, among other scenarios, requires database duplication and cloning. Strategies to optimize and tune backup and recovery considering availability demands and large data volumes are also needed. And traditional problem-solving for data corruption, media failure, data loss and the like remain necessities.
Included among the subjects considered within this course are:
Oracle Training Audience
The primary target audience for this course is Oracle database administrators who will be specialists in backup and recovery duties. Oracle web server and application server administrators, as well as others who must manage an embedded repository database using Oracle database technology will also find this information useful.
- Using Oracle flashback technology to recover from user errors and from database failures, including flashback data archive and flashback transaction backout along with the Total Recall capability.
- Use advanced Enterprise Manager wizards and tools, including the integrated LogMiner, Flasback Transaction Backout wizard, database Recovery Wizard, Recovery Advisor interface, and others.
- Database instance recovery, tuning checkpoints, the Redo Log File Size Advisor and the MTTR Advisor.
- User-managed recovery scenarios, including recovery from temporary, read-only and index tablespaces.
- Automatically managed backup strategies and database recovery operations using RMAN and other database facilities. Complete and incomplete media recovery, including database point-in-time recovery and tablespace point-in-time recovery.
- Build upon basic RMAN capabilities with a centralized recovery catalog. Deploy standardized and consistent backup and recovery procedures throughout the enterprise by means of dynamic stored scripts and variable substitution.
- Optimizing backups for faster performance and parallelization of operations, employing compression algorithms and other strategies for efficiency.
- Data preservation through archival backups.
- Security through transparent and explicit encryption features.
- Duplicate databases for regulatory compliance, Real Application Testing database replay, test configuration and other purposes.
- Detecting and handling failures and corruption, including the use of RMAN block recovery and the Data Recovery Advisor.
This course is also recommended for technical consultants, support engineers, project managers and other technical management and support personnel
Many students taking this course have familiarity with system administration and administration of other non-Oracle databases, and this is helpful though not mandatory. Specific course prerequisites for this course are these titles:
This course along with its prerequisites cover information necessary to complete the certification test EXAM #1Z1-053 ORACLE DATABASE 11g: ADMINISTRATION II.
