Welcome to RAC Administration

This Oracle Database 12c R2: RAC Administration training will teach you about Oracle RAC database architecture. Expert Oracle University instructors will deep dive into Global Resources and Cache Fusion. In this course, you will be introduced to Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service.
