This post covered the First part of Day 1 from our live interactive Oracle DBA to Cloud DBA Training
This post is the continuation from my Previous two video Blogs, In the First Blog I have covered How to Create your Database on Oracle Cloud (OCI ) and I also gave you a task on creating it yourself and then connect to database host so you understand it better, then
In the Second Video Blog, I have covered Troubleshooting the Database Connectivity On Oracle Cloud (OCI), We looked at things like Internet Gateway defined at VCN level then Routing Table for connection from Internet to IGW to Database host and also allowing SSH port 22 & Database listener port 1521 in Security List of Subnet where database is deployed
After posting the previous two blogs, I received a lot of messages in my Facebook Community that they are beginners in Cloud so where they can start with.
Last week we also launched our new batch for Training How to go from DBA to Oracle Cloud DBA in 6 weeks and a lot of you also asked if they can get the glimpse of what to expect or what they should learn or in what order
I thought why not share the first part of Day1 from our DBA to Oracle Cloud DBA in 6 weeks training.
Order To Learn Cloud DBA
If you are planning to learn Cloud DBA, use the below order to learn for better understanding & to clear your concepts.
In this part 1 our Cloud DBA Training, Instructor (Rajeev) starts with 9 Module’s Introduction we cover in this training so you can use this order to learn Cloud DBA
Topics Covered on Day 1
We have covered below topics in brief in our Day 1 Live Interactive session.
Out of these full topic, I am sharing the first two topics
1) Cloud Concepts/Service Models
As a DBA, Apps DBA, System Administrator you should learn both which is IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) the reason is because whatever you building or deploying is over Infrastructure as a Service ie. PaaS always runs on top of IaaS that’s the reason you should have the knowledge of both.
Check about the Cloud Service Models which is the first thing you must learn when starting in Cloud
2) OCI vs OCI-C
Then, he talks about OCI vs OCI- Classic so Oracle has 2 Cloud, Gen 1 Cloud which is OCI-Classic and Gen 2 OCI. OCI Classic is slowly being phased out so all new customers should be moving to OCI. For the same reason, we migrated our DBA to Cloud DBA training from OCI-Classic to OCI where you build, manage & migrate Database on OCI
Check more about OCI vs OCI Classic
3) OCI Core Services
In OCI, there are various Services, Compute and two version of that Bare Metal (BM) and Virtual Machine (VM), Storage mainly Block & Object Storage, Networking (so things like VPN, Load Balancer, Firewall, Security List, Fastconnect) Identity & Access Management for Security and REST API to Console as interface to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
4) Database Overview & Concepts
He then covers two main categories of Database first User Managed that includes BM Database, VM Database, Exadata Cloud Service, and second type as Autonomous Database and within that ATP & ADW
