The Oracle Private Cloud Appliance: Overview introduces essential concepts for administration and operation of the virtualization environment hosted by the Private Cloud Appliance helping you manage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Learn To:

  • Describe the hardware and software as installed and configured in the Private Cloud Appliance.
  • Identify features that monitor the health of hardware.
  • Explain memory, CPU, and storage resources for effective virtualization support.
  • Describe the virtual machine life cycle.
  • Differentiate requirements and conditions for virtual machines running with high availability or in isolation.
  • Explain the allocation of IaaS resources with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control and with Oracle VM in the Private Cloud appliance.

Benefits to You:

The Oracle Private Cloud Appliance delivers on the promise of simplified cloud management. The converged infrastructure solution consists of preconfigured Oracle server, network, and storage hardware and Oracle software, to create a highly configurable pool of memory, CPU, and storage resources for running applications in a virtualization environment. Administration of the Private Cloud Appliance enables:

  • Cost reduction by eliminating multi-vendor integration.
  • Eliminating the risk of cabling, hardware or software configuration errors.
  • Reducing the amount of time taken to deploy new applications.
  • Licensing only the software that is used, and not the capacity.

This seminar prepares students for creating, deploying and managing virtualized servers in an installed Private Cloud Appliance by providing an overview of the preconfigured hardware and software features.
