The Oracle Solaris Containers Administration course offers a practical, guided experience working with Oracle Solaris Containers, the Oracle virtualization feature comprised of Oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle Solaris Resource Controls. Containers are used to create isolated environments for running applications, and enable server consolidation with low overhead. In this course, you gain the knowledge critical to properly implement and manage these important capabilities in the Oracle Solaris Operating System.

The hands-on practice exercises offered in this course involve accessing equipment that resides at a location other than where the training is delivered.
