This Oracle Private Cloud Appliance: Administration training helps you develop the skills to provide and support Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with the Private Cloud Appliance. Learn from expert Oracle University instructors.

Learn To:

  • Review the hardware and software as installed and configured in the Private Cloud Appliance.
  • Monitor the health of hardware.
  • Allocate memory, CPU, network, and storage resources for effective virtualization support.
  • Create, deploy, manage, and delete virtual machines.
  • Configure the allocation of IaaS resources.
  • Configure the Private Cloud Appliance Oracle VM environment in which virtualized servers run.
  • Provide IaaS with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control.
  • Manage the efficient allocation of appliance resources.
  • Design an effective disaster recovery solution for the Private Cloud Appliance.
  • Perform a selection of activities on a simulated lab environment.

Benefits to You

This course will empower you with skills to administer the Private Cloud Appliance. This results in cost reduction by eliminating multi-vendor integration. You'll also be able to eliminate the risk of cabling, hardware or software configuration errors. By taking this training, you will learn to reduce the time to deploy new applications. You will see how to license only the software that is used, and not the capacity while hearing how you can ensure business continuity for IaaS consumers.

Simplify Cloud Management

The Oracle Private Cloud Appliance delivers on the promise of simplified cloud management. The converged infrastructure solution consists of pre-configured Oracle servers, network, and storage hardware and software. With this engineered system, you'll create and maintain a highly configurable pool of memory, CPU, and storage resources for running applications in a virtualization environment.
