Once a database is part of your IT infrastructure, you need to protect and maintain it. You also have to ensure that it is operating at optimal capacity. This course focuses on the database administrator (DBA), the individual charged with building, maintaining, and backing up the database. Explore key responsibilities and tasks performed by the DBA involving the security, migration, troubleshooting, and configuration of databases. Discover how the role of the DBA compares to that of a database developer. Finally, learn about common maintenance functions performed for a database such as backup and restore, user management, and performance tuning. Upon completion of this course, you'll understand the role of a DBA and how the DBA's day-to-day responsibilities differ from those of a database developer.
