Training On Demand - Using Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c

Written by Maria Billings, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer

Do you want to advance your career, but never know beforehand when you might have time for training?

Try Oracle University’s Training On Demand or TOD curriculum. You can watch recorded classroom and hands-on sessions in smaller or larger increments as it fits into your schedule.

For Database Vault

  • Do you sometimes need to prove that you couldn't possibly have seen confidential information, although you are a highly privileged DBA?
  • Did you know that the Oracle Database 12c has a Database Vault option already installed, ready to be enabled, if your organization decides to use it?
  • What is Database Vault?

Database Vault TOD Training is composed of several components, including realms, rule sets, command rules, secure application roles and factors that can be highly customized or simply used out-of-the box.

A realm, for example, is a zone of protection for tables, roles, and packages. A realm protects the objects in it from users exercising system privileges, such as SELECT ANY TABLE. So, any such privileged user must be defined as a realm participant (or have a realm-participating role that is granted to him or her) to access the protected objects.

If you are not a realm participant or owner, you can show that a query of a realm-protected table will result in the "ORA-01031: insufficient privileges" error. In short, you can prove you couldn't have possibly seen the confidential content.

The course "Using Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c" TOD training goes into all the necessary details to show you:

  1. How to reduce the attack surface for potential security breaches through limiting privileges.
  2. How to perform security analysis and report security vulnerabilities.
  3. How to configure and maintain Database Vault elements.
  4. How to implement best practices, which begins by identifying YOUR security requirements.

You can then see samples of building and documenting security implementations, and you view or discuss sample use cases, such as the workflow of an application DBA, dual key security, dynamic auditing, and so on.

SPOTLIGHT ON: In-Memory Training as part of Oracle Database 12c New Features Course

Written by Dominique Jeunot, Oracle Database Curriculum Developer

Why wait?

Develop the additional skills you need and benefit from all that Oracle Database 12c has to offer.

In-Memory Database Logo

"With Oracle Database In-Memory, you decide what data goes into memory - with no limits or restraints from software. The rest of your data is stored in less-expensive Flash or on disk. Oracle Database In-Memory works seamlessly with them all,"Jeff Erickson, Oracle Product Management.

Database-In Memory Training: What Will I Learn?

Dominique Jeunot, Oracle University Curriculum Developer, elaborates on the New Oracle Database In-Memory feature:

"The Oracle Database In-Memory option is a solution for accelerated database-driven business decision-making to real-time speeds. Unlike specialized approaches that are restricted to particular workloads or applications, the unique approach of Oracle Database In-Memory leverages a new in-memory column store format to speed up analytic, data warehousing, and reporting, while also accelerating transaction processing (OLTP) workloads."

Dominique was instrumental in helping develop our recently launched Oracle Database 12c: New Features for Administrators Ed 2 course.

In this course, you'll learn about the new and enhanced features and options of Oracle Database 12c. Expert instructors will teach you how these features and options strengthen security, manageability and overall performance.

Learn To:

  • Manage the Oracle multi-tenant container database and pluggable databases. 
  • Configure Heat Map and use Automatic Data Optimization.
  • Benefit from Online Datafile Move.
  • Understand the new temporal capabilities, as well as in-Database Archiving with Row-archival.
  • Enforce security with the Unified Auditing, the new administrative privileges, Privilege memory Caching and the automatic Big Table caching features.
  • Benefit from optimizer enhancements, including Adaptive Execution Plans and SQL Plan Directives, Real-Time ADDM and Compare Period ADDM.
  • Use enhanced features of Resource Manager in multi-tenant container databases and pluggable databases.

Instructor Insight: Oracle 12c High Availability New Features - Table Recovery in a GoldenGate Environment

By Randy Richeson, Senior Principal Oracle University Instructor

"Students often ask if a table can be recovered to a point in time and whether GoldenGate can capture this recovery. Oracle 12c enables you to recover one or more tables or table partitions to a specified point in time without affecting the remaining database objects.

This new RMAN functionality reduces the recovery scope and possibly the recovery time and disk space requirements when compared with Database point-in-time-recovery, tablespace point-in-time recovery, and various flashback features which were introduced prior to 12c."

Expand Your Mind and Expand Your Cluster with High Availability Training

Written by Peter Fusek, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer, Oracle Curriculum Development Team

Flex Clusters, a new feature of Oracle Clusterware 12c, blows away the previous cluster size limits and lets you:

  • Manage large pools of application resources, with high-availability and fail-over protection. 
  • Efficiently support multiple highly available databases and applications running in a single cluster. 

You will see how when you attend Oracle Database 12c: High Availability New Features Training.

Take control with no surprises....learn about policy-based cluster management and what-if command evaluation. These new features of Oracle Clusterware 12c make cluster management easier, more flexible and more reliable.

Consolidate more databases on each cluster...if you use ASM, Flex ASM is a game changer. If you don't then you should use.... 

Flex ASM, a new feature of Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c. It removes the requirement to run ASM on every cluster node. Users are transparently protected from ASM failures; organizations can consolidate more databases (or do more work) on each cluster.

You can boost application availability and transact with certainty, without re-engineering your applications. 

Application continuity, a new feature of Oracle Database 12c, makes recoverable outages (node failures, process failures, instance failures, transient network failures, transient storage failures, etc.) from applications and end users.

It replays the transactional and non-transactional work that constitutes a database request, while guaranteeing transactions are executed once and only once. 

Best of all, application continuity can be leveraged by many existing applications, without changing a line of code.

Get started with Oracle Database 12c: High Availability New Feature training today.
