We are pleased to announce the release of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2023 Observability Professional Certification. This certification caters to Cloud Professionals such as Developers, Cloud Operations Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers (SREs), DevOps/SecOps Engineers, Cloud Administrators, Database Administrators and Cloud Architects.
If you are interested in learning more about the OCI Observability and Management Platform, this course is right for you.
Observability refers to the ability to understand the internal state of a system and help you to determine why the system is in a specific state. This is achieved through instrumenting the different pillars of observability – Metrics, Traces, Logs and Events.
There are a wide range of use cases you can achieve through these observability pillars, whether you are a Developer or DevOps Engineer looking to accelerate code delivery; a Security Operations Engineer seeking to harden the security perimeter of the network; a Database Administrator who wants to manage Cloud and On-Premises Databases from a single pane of glass; or a Site Reliability Engineer who needs to quickly troubleshoot incidents, you can leverage a reliable, unified, easy-to-use unified Observability platform.
OCI Observability & Management (O&M) Platform consists of a set of cloud services that enables you to monitor, analyze, and manage applications and infrastructure environments with full-stack visibility, prebuilt analytics, and automation capabilities.
This integrated platform aggregates all the observability data for holistic analysis and applies operations-optimized Machine Learning algorithms that can identify anomalous system behaviour, rapidly isolate and remediate performance problems, and prevent outages by providing accurate forecasting of impending issues.
The O&M platform is comprised of the following services:
Our goal with this certification and the related course assets is to help you develop a deeper understanding of each OCI O&M service and become proficient in building a complete observability solution with a unified view across the entire infrastructure, applications and software stack.
Each module in the course consists of micro-lessons that are mapped to individual learning objectives that explain both fundamental concepts and advanced features along with the use cases. Most of the lessons contain demos that illustrate key concepts and provide hands-on familiarity with the O&M services.
The course also includes skill checks for you to continuously validate your knowledge, hands-on lab instructions to gain familiarity with services, and a practice exam and an exam prep session so you take the exam (and ace it) with confidence!
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
