Viscosity is teaming up with ODTUG once a month till Kscope21 to bring you an Oracle database 19c hands-on lab!

In this two hour class, students will learn the fundamentals to managing the new frontier of pluggable databases. Each student will be assigned 2 VMs to configure PDBs and work labs.

With the recent announcement at Oracle OpenWorld, starting in Oracle Database 19c, we are allowed to have up to 3 pluggable databases per container database. Effective Oracle Database 20c, non-containerized databases will no longer be supported. As an attendee of this session, you will receive a free copy of the PDB Me to Oracle Cloud book written by Oracle ACEs. Come learn what it takes to effectively create, configure, manage and monitor Oracle PDBs while learning all the latest and greatest new features of Oracle PDBs from Oracle 12.2/18c/19c.

Outline:
Migrate a non-CDB database to a singleton containerized database
Setup performance governors on the database tier
Clone PDB databases from one container to another container without downtime
Setup refreshable PDBs
Setup refreshable Proxy PDBs
Setup PDB Archives
Configure lockdown profiles
