Course Description

Key aspects of administering Oracle Database 12c include managing client connections to database servers and optimizing the ways data is stored to conserve space and improve system performance. In this course, you'll learn how to manage Oracle Net Services. You'll also learn how to work with tablespaces and data files, and how to manage the space used by the core storage structures, data blocks and segments. Finally, you'll learn about the Undo feature in Oracle Database 12c. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that cover the objectives for the Oracle Database 12c Installation and Administration exam (1Z0-062).
