This Oracle Cloud IaaS: Compute and Storage Fundamentals training gives students the necessary skills to create Oracle Linux virtual machine instances using Oracle Compute Cloud Service and to store large amounts of unstructured data in Oracle Storage Cloud Service. Students will learn how to use orchestrations and apply Oracle's best practices to create and manage instances and networking and storage resources. Sign up now for early releases of this course which will be available in August, 2016. With Oracle Compute Cloud Service, Students will Learn To:Assign processor and memory resources from a range of resource profiles.Automate VM provisioning and management workflows.Create VM instances using Oracle-provided and custom machine images (Bitnami).Provide a persistent boot disk for VM instances.Exercise fine-grained control over network traffic.Reserve and assign fixed public IP addresses.Attach high-capacity block storage to instances.Monitor and manage all resources through a unified interface.Ensure secure access to instances.With Oracle Storage Cloud Service, Students will Learn To:Create a container in object storage to store data.Set container metadata, such as ACLs and quota.Create objects.Upload files of size larger than 5 GB(preferably a Bitnami OS image).Manage objects (listing, downloading, and deleting). Benefits To YouBenefit by taking this training which supports Oracle Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud Services. Oracle Compute Cloud Service is Oracle's flagship IaaS offering. Oracle Compute Cloud Service training will be coupled in this course with training for the Oracle Storage Cloud Service, which is an enterprise-grade, large-scale, object storage solution for files and unstructured data.A Live Virtual Class (LVC) is exclusively for registered students; unregistered individuals may not view an LVC at any time. Registered students must view the class from the country listed in the registration form. Unauthorized recording, copying, or transmission of LVC content may not be made.
