Benefits to You
Maximize Cloud Resources
Server virtualization is the first step to delivering application and cloud services. In your Oracle VM environment, you have the ability to deploy and redeploy standardized and pre-configured software appliances to meet workload objectives and to redistribute physical and virtual resources to maximize resources for your application workload. In this course, you learn the tools and processes to accelerate your private cloud deployments and to redeploy resources effectively.
Increase Application Availability
Virtual environments introduce challenges for isolating and solving problems. Learn to detect problems at every layer of the Oracle VM environment, how to capture a configuration snapshot of your environment before making changes and as a way to communicate vital information about your environment to Oracle support.
Protect Cloud Resources
You learn to identify the resources that you must protect, and the steps to back up and recover these resources. You explore environment-wide recovery scenarios and gain knowledge that you can use as a blueprint for your disaster recovery strategy.
