For those who are already familiar, it would be a rehash of the basics and intermediate knowledge.
If you are looking for cutting edge practices and architecture involving Oracle RAC and Data Guard, you would be disappointed. For example, Oracle RAC has a component called Cache Fusion (or whatever they call it now) which coordinates locking and data caches across 3 nodes. The book never dives into this and why having more than 3 nodes in RAC could sometimes be counterproductive.
The same could be applied to Data Guard. Just how does the redo apply (physical standby) work? How is that so much different from SQL apply (logical standby)? How fast is redo apply during Fast Sync especially for large transactions? How well does Oracle Dataguard function in a Synchronous (two-phase commit) Maximum Availability mode? What are some of the pitfalls, risks, and drawbacks? From what I can tell, the answers to these types of more advanced questions were lacking.
Still, this book provides a very solid foundation for Oracle RAC, Dataguard, and Flashback.
1)Highly recommended for those who are getting into Oracle.
2)Highly recommended for those who are trying to refresh their knowledge of Oracle RAC, Data Guard, and Flashback or trying to upgrade their knowledge from 10g.
3)Good and useful instructions on installation of Oracle RAC and Data Guard.
1)Doesn't get into too much details into the working of Oracle RAC, Data Guard, and Flashback.
- it covers a lot of very important big topics
- it gives a long-running hands-on lab as an example
- it is written well
- it gives advice and justifications for its take on 'best practices'
Each topic is complicated. No, the book does not cover every part of every topic. But it gives a great overview and makes the DBA pro wanting more.
Great job guys - send me the next manuscript update and I will tech review it for you (smile).
