Number of Days: 

In the Oracle Database 12c: New Features for Administrators course, you’ll learn about the new and enhanced features of Oracle Database 12c. Expert instructors will teach you how these features increase security, manageability and performance. Explore the following New Features: Online Data-file Move; Heat Map; Automatic Data Optimization; Temporal history; Temporal validity; Row-archival; Unified Auditing; Administrative privileges; Privilege Analysis; Data Redaction; Adaptive Execution Plans; SQL Plan Directives; Real-Time ADDM; Compare Period ADDM; Data Pump; Partitioning; SQLOracle's 12c Database ensure fast, reliable, secure and easy to manage performance, optimize database workloads, lower IT costs and deliver a higher quality of service by enabling consolidation onto database clouds. As well as, a review of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c and Enterprise Manager Database Express, you'll learn the new concept of multitenant architecture, its benefits and usage. This includes tasks like creating, managing, monitoring, backing up and recovering multitenant container database and pluggable databases.
