The Oracle Solaris 11 Zones Administration training is an advanced course offering that builds on Oracle Solaris 11 system administration courses. Expert Oracle University instructors will help you develop the skills and knowledge required to administer Oracle Solaris Zones server virtualization technology.Learn To:Plan infrastructure consolidation using zone. Configure nonglobal zones including: solaris native zones, solaris10 zones, and kernel zones. Administer zones.Migrate global and nonglobal zones.Manage zone resources including: CPUs, memory, networks, and storage.Optimize zones.Troubleshoot zone problems.Benefits to YouBy taking this course, you'll get a chance to examine various aspects of planning for implementing server virtualization in an enterprise environment. Throughout the course, you'll practice server virtualization by performing a series of guided hands-on labs that walk you through the critical tasks associated with server and network virtualization activities.Participate in Hands-On LabsThese labs include case studies that showcase best practices when deploying Oracle Solaris Zones server virtualization technology. This course does not address system virtualization related tasks specific to Solaris 10 (or other) operating systems. Rather, it focuses on thevirtualization technology as implemented in the Oracle Solaris 11 operating system.Required Prerequisite KnowledgeThis course is intended for IT architects and system administrators who are responsible for planning and performing server virtualization tasks in the datacenter. It assumes you already have the skills and knowledge necessary to administer Oracle Solaris 11.Live Virtual Class FormatA 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.
