Exasol Administration on premises


About This Course

We discuss Exasol Cluster Database deployment on premises here. You should attend the course Exasol Administration Essentials before this course as it explains several administration topics that are not platform specific.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Exasol Cluster Architecture
  • Installing an Exasol Cluster on premises
  • Manage cluster nodes
  • FailSafety

The course consists of videos, quizzes and many hands-on exercises. Within the hands-on exercises, you will install a 2+1 Cluster on your own local machine using VirtualBox VMs. The course environment is not provided by Exasol - you need to use your own hardware for it. We recommend to use a machine with 16 GB memory and 80 GB free disk space for it.

Who is this training for

This course has been designed for Administrators in charge of an Exasol Cluster Database. Also Developers and other people in technical roles may benefit from it. You will be doing several quite elaborate technical tasks including the installation and configuration of an Exasol Cluster during this course. But it results in having your own Exasol Sandbox to play with, so it might be worth the effort.
