dbi InSite Workshops

dbi services has been working on the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) since years now and made a lot of consolidation projects with disaster recovery and/or high availability on this platform. In our dbi InSite workshop training, our ODA experts will share their practical knowledge with you: in only two days, you will learn how to efficiently implement, operate, and optimize ODA. We will show you how you to leverage ODA to get maximum performance and flexibility from this single-box database solution. You will also gain a fundamental insight into the ODA architecture. If ODA hardware is available for exercises, the training course can be extended to three days.
