The new OCA credential gives you a solid foundation of knowledge to implement and administer the Oracle Linux Operating System. Oracle Linux's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel allows certified individuals to deliver extreme performance, advanced scalability and reliability for enterprise applications. Oracle Linux combines the latest innovations in Linux with Oracle-specific capabilities such as dynamic tracing and performance optimization with Dtrace, and no-downtime patching with Ksplice.
Becoming certified gives you a competitive edge through proven expertise on the only Linux distribution that's fully optimized for Oracle products. This Linux distribution is also optimized for running on Oracle's engineered systems including Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and Oracle Database Appliance.
While training is not required, the Oracle Linux System Administration course
is highly recommended, as it provides a strong foundation for an Oracle Linux System Administrator. It also teaches candidates how to install Oracle Linux and provides an understanding of the benefits of Oracle's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK).
