Overview

The course covers planning, installation, and deployment of Oracle Database Appliance, Release 18c. Students will learn how Oracle Database Appliance compares to other Oracle engineered systems and the advantages of using Oracle Database Appliance. After reviewing and planning for a new deployment, students will utilize the Web Console to deploy a bare metal appliance and the Oracle Appliance Configuration Manager tool to generate a deployment plan configuration for a virtualized appliance. Additional instructional videos and simulation software covers the concepts of racking and cabling a newly arrived Oracle Database Appliance system, running first boot scripts, downloading and installing the end-user bundle, and applying the latest patch bundles. The simulation labs are performed for both bare metal deployments and virtualized Oracle Database Appliance deployments.
