Most of the advanced computer systems make use of databases and even though other database management systems are also widely used, the majority of the large organizations are fond of Oracle, which is considered far more secure and extremely effective. The latest version of Oracle, 11g, comes with great new features, which make it even better performer and easier to optimize than its predecessor. Most of the IT companies are willing to pay good salaries to a skilled Oracle developer, which explains the popularity of the Oracle certification courses.
One such course is the “Backup and recovery 10g and 11g” course, which is offered to IT professionals and is considered a crucial step towards their certification. The course is most suitable for database administrators and database warehouse administrators and has great number of objectives. Attending this course will teach you how to create good backup and recovery procedures, use the Recovery Manager to perform the necessary operations, utilize the Oracle Flashback technologies, and install the Oracle Secure Backup. Covered are also using the Oracle Secure Backup to perform file system backup and restoration, managing the Oracle Secure Backup environment, creating duplicate databases, and monitoring and tuning the Recovery Manager.
Each of these large topics is broken down into smaller topics and the course starts with an introduction part that acquaints the audience to the backup and recovery methods and strategies. Then, each one of the objectives is covered in detail, where the training starts with Configuration for recovery, continues with the use of RMAN to create backups and perform recovery, and continues with the Flashback technology topics. After almost all the topics are covered, the emphasis is put on backup security and user access, administrative server security technology and certificate authority, and encrypted backups are discussed in detail. Even though, you might be tempted to try covering some of this material on your own, you can greatly benefit from enrolling for a backup and recovery class, where an experienced instructor could present the material to a small group and help you learn everything that you need to know on the topic.
