In this course will learn about 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.

Through a blend of hands-on labs and interactive lectures you will also learn 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.
