In this 3 day course the student will explore the multitenant architecture and the usage of pluggable databases (PDBs) in multitenant container databases (CDBs).


Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Understand core concepts of PDBs.
  • Create a CDB, and then using different methods to create PDBs.
  • Understand how to start and shut down a CDB and how to open and close a PDB.
  • Understand security aspects in CDBs and PDBs in various areas such as users, privileges and roles.
  • Understand availability through backup, duplicate, recovery, and flashback topics and performance, monitoring, and resources allocation management in CDBs and PDBs.
  • Learn to move data from a non-CDB environment to a PDB.
  • Learn how to move data between PDBs by using utilities such as Oracle's Data Pump export / import, Oracle's Recovery Manager (RMAN) and various commands.
