This book is a great read and an invaluable reference to Data Guard. As a production DBA working on a 10g RAC cluster with RAC/Dataguard standby I now keep this book on my desk at all times. Although it was written for 11g there are many pointers to how things worked in 10g. Quite a few of the tips and tricks truly are not documented, e.g. multi-threaded gap resolution in particular which saved the day for me recently when our standby became 5 days behind the primary database due to a power outage! I can't say I'm too surprised to find this is a great book as I've often heard Larry Carpenter speak at the Oracle User Group conferences, and it's clear that there is probably nothing he doesn't know about Data Guard. My only criticism is that sometimes assumptions are made, e.g. in the creation of a physical standby it assumes you are using an spfile. But on the whole it was worth every penny!

Solid Oracle Data Guard Book 27 Jan. 2010
By Darl Kuhn - Published on
Format: Paperback
The authors do a good job of explaining Data Guard features and architectural components and the decisions that you need to make to be successful with Data Guard. The book is full of tips and recommendations that can only come from experience with using Data Guard in a wide variety of configurations and environments. Where applicable, the authors explain the Data Guard differences between 11g, 10g, and 9i. The book also has several working examples and scripts of how RMAN is used to help create database used in Data Guard environments. This book will raise your knowledge of Data Guard to an expert level.

The best on the subject 21 Dec. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is by far one of the best Oracle books I have read along with Expert one on One and a couple of titles from K Gopalakrishnan (Wait events and RAC). It has very indepth details of concepts and day to day setup and maintainence of a Data Guard. A very engrossing read (which is rare for a technical book). It can be used by anyone from novice to a professional dba. Awesome book.

goes beyond the white papers 29 July 2009
By arisp - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you have been deploying High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions then you probably agree that the MAA docs and white papers are among the best material published on the Oracle OTN website.
This book actually manages to go deeper and beyond the docs, white papers and all conference presentations you may have attended on Oracle Data Guard.

A very good book on the subject, however, is not a reference book 3 Nov. 2010
By Michael Murov - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I find the book is well written, interesting to read, it contains many useful advices and examples. However, it is neither a replacement for the official documentaion nor it is a comprehensive reference, my guess it was not meant to be. I found it not really useful in most of situations when I quickly needed answers for real life DataGuard management tasks, the reason being the information provided in the book - commands etc. - firstly, quite limited to the scope of examples, secondly, scattered across the book. Nevertheless, I think it is the best book on the subject at the moment, and it definitely worth the money.
Great refernce and wonderful for teaching DG concepts 13 Feb. 2010
By T. Roach - Published on
Format: Paperback
Where was this book when I needed to setup DG years ago!? I've read the Oracle documentation on DG which can leave much to be desired. This Book expands on that. The authors do a wonderful job of teaching any Oracle professional the skills needed to be successful at DG. It teaches all the options and scenarios of setting up DG from scratch in all modes (Max Protection, Max Availability, and Max Performance) and also Physical Standby's, Logical Standby's, Flashback with DG as well as Active Dataguard. It gives the pros and cons of each approach. It goes into the DG broker and how to leverage it for greater control over your DG environments. It even expands on how to setup DG with Grid Control and setup monitoring. My favorite part though is the Troubleshooting pieces. When I have run into issues, I reach for this guide before going to Google or Metalink. It's very resourceful. Don't let the title fool you as the majority of the content in the book is backwards compatible (i.e. 10g for example).

The only gripe I have about this book is that it wasn't written sooner! :)

If you could pick just one book to have on DG, then this is it.
