Oracle Certification: Oracle Exadata Database Machine Administration

For those working on Exadata: Oracle University recently released a new test called "Oracle Exadata Database Machine Administration". This OU exam is very relevant for those designing and administrating Exadata environments.

Passing this test would give you the "Oracle Certified Expert" credential and prove you are able to work out the following key area's:
  • Architecture
  • Exadata Key Capabilities
  • Initial Configuration
  • Storage Server Configuration
  • I/O Resource Management
  • Consolidation
  • Migration
  • Bulk Data Loading
  • Monitoring & ASR
  • Backup and Recovery
  • Planned Maintenance
  • QOS

The test has been developed by Oracle Universities best instructors and I would really recommend taking the test if this is your field of expertise. It's a good opportunity to prove your skills. And for those looking for skilled Exadata specialists, I would recommend asking for people who passed this OU test additional to traditional 11g OCP and some basic Linux & Networking skills.
