Oracle Solaris 11 Training and Certification Programmes help customers and partners quickly embrace the Cloud

29 Nov 2011 Redwood Shores - Helping customers and partners reach the Cloud faster, Oracle has launched the Oracle Solaris 11 Training and Certification Programmes from Oracle University. Oracle Solaris 11 is the first Cloud OS, designed to meet the security, performance and scalability requirements of Cloud-based deployments and allow customers to run their most demanding enterprise applications in private, hybrid, or public Clouds.

Oracle Solaris 11 Training includes the most up-to-date curriculum from Oracle Solaris experts to give customers and partners the knowledge and skills they need to efficiently deploy Oracle Solaris 11 and capitalize on its latest features.

The Oracle Solaris 11 Training courses are designed to help expand the skill-set and expertise of system administrators managing data centres with Oracle SPARC and x86 servers, storage and engineered systems.

The new courses available include: What's New in Oracle Solaris, previewing the latest innovations in Oracle Solaris 11; Transition to Oracle Solaris 11, designed for experienced Oracle Solaris 10 system administrators; and Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration and Oracle Solaris 11 Advanced System Administration, intended for new Oracle Solaris or UNIX system administrators.

Customers and partners can choose their preferred learning format by either attending an educational session at one of Oracle University's worldwide training locations, learning remotely via an Oracle University virtual classroom, or downloading self-study course materials designed for learning anytime, anywhere.

Oracle is also offering discounts on Oracle University's programmes for Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) members, as well as discounts on training for Oracle Premier Support customers.

To date, there are more than 130,000 Oracle Solaris certified professionals. With the latest release, Oracle Certification is raising the bar with new Oracle Solaris 11 Certification credentials. These include:

  • New and improved Oracle Solaris certifications emphasize more advanced skills to align better with industry standards and result in an even more valuable credential for customers and partners.
  • The Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) for Oracle Solaris 11 now has an all-new definition and focus, with certification objectives that measure IT professionals' day-to-day system administration skills, in addition to their ability to manage the challenges they are likely to encounter in many situations.

Building upon all of the competencies incorporated into Oracle's new OCA Oracle Solaris 11 certification, the Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) for Oracle Solaris 11 is the most advanced certification yet. The certification includes new advanced knowledge and skills required of top-performing system administrators.

Oracle now offers several upgrade paths for those who hold Sun Certified System Administrator (SCSA) or Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) certification on Oracle Solaris 10 or earlier versions.

"Oracle is dedicated to providing our valued customers and partners the educational opportunities they need to seamlessly deploy our latest technologies", stated John Hall, senior vice president, Oracle University. "With the new Oracle Solaris 11 training and certification, we are helping customers and partners migrate or upgrade to the new OS more easily, safely and faster, so they can quickly embrace Cloud computing within their enterprise. Our close collaboration with Oracle's product development team and engineers makes us the ideal ally to help enterprises transition efficiently to a Cloud computing environment."
