The Oracle Data Guard 19c course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of Oracle Data Guard, a high-availability and disaster recovery solution for Oracle Databases. Participants will learn how to configure, manage, and monitor Data Guard configurations to ensure data protection and minimize downtime. The course covers topics such as Data Guard architecture, configuration modes, switchover and failover operations, and performance tuning techniques.
To fully benefit from this course, participants should have a solid understanding of Oracle Database administration concepts, including database installation, backup and recovery, and database architecture. Familiarity with Oracle Database 19c administration is recommended.
The course employs a combination of theoretical instruction, demonstrations, and hands-on labs. Participants will receive detailed explanations of Data Guard concepts and techniques, followed by practical demonstrations of their implementation. They will also have the opportunity to apply their learning in hands-on labs, gaining practical experience in configuring and managing Data Guard environments. The course is delivered through instructor-led sessions, allowing participants to interact, ask questions, and engage in discussions.
