5.0 von 5 Sternen Expert Oracle RAC 12c is a hands-on book 10. Oktober 2013
Von Mahir M. Quluzade - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As you know, the Oracle Database with the Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) option allows running multiple database instances on different servers in the cluster against a shared set of data files, also known as the database. The database spans multiple hardware systems and yet appears as a single unified database to the application. This enables the utilization of commodity hardware to reduce total cost of ownership and to provide a scalable computing environment that supports various application workloads. Oracle RAC is Oracle's premier shared disk database clustering technology.

I finished review of the book about Oracle RAC technology - "Expert Oracle RAC 12c" by authors Syed Jaffar Hussain (Oracle ACED, DBA of the Year for 2011), Tariq Farooq (Oracle ACED), Riyaj Shamsudeen (Oracle ACED, Member of OakTable Network) and Kai Yu (Oracle ACED, Technologist of the Year for 2012) published by APRESS.

The book "Expert Oracle RAC 12c" is covered every aspect of Oracle Real Application Clusters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great New Oracle 12c RAC Book 29. August 2013
Von Bert Scalzo - Veröffentlicht auf
Oracle 12c has been out a few months now and so we're starting to see some 12c books finally debut. One of the best new 12c books that I've reviewed thus far is Expert Oracle RAC 12c written by no less than four Oracle ACE Directors. If you're not familiar with the Oracle ACE program, achieving director status requires epic accomplishment and recognition. So having four ACE Directors as authors on one book is noteworthy. Now for full disclosure I'm friends with three of the four authors - but that won't affect my review of their book. Neither will the kickbacks - woops, just kidding :)

Oracle RAC by its very nature is a complex technology infrastructure. Sometimes just being able to "see" or visualize what you're trying to work with can make a huge difference. This book has just the right mix and some of the very best concept diagrams I've seen. So right from the start you can visualize and thus know what they're talking about. Specifically, I can honestly say this book contains the best explanation of split brain scenarios and node eviction as I learned a lot on something I thought I already knew. Now add to that fantastic command line examples and screen snapshots from GUI tools like OEM, and you never feel like any part of the book is beyond gasp. Plus of course it contains all the relevant new 12c features throughout.

I especially liked chapters 6 and 10 - Application Design Issues and RAC Database Optimization. Even though chapter 6 is short, it covers the key database design issues that honestly most DBA's don't take into consideration when deploying an application onto RAC. Some of these can make or break whether you'll be successful. Chapter 10 then covers all the performance problems likely to be encountered and how to detect/resolve them. If you paid strict attention, most are results of failures to adhere to good design covered in chapter 6. So you're told how to design around this and how to fix if you did not.

In summation, I can honestly say this is now my favorite and "go to" book for all things RAC. If you're going to buy just one book on RAC - this is the one to get.

5.0 von 5 Sternen GO TO book to become a RAC expert!! 3. Januar 2014
Von Sahil - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is best ever book on RAC technology. No other book till date has been able to explain this widely used technology in the way it is successfully done in this book. Each and every chapter has wealth of information and is explained in systematic manner. After reading this book I no more have to google for information when I am stuck in any RAC administration or performance related issue. Each and every chapter builds a very crystal clear understanding of this complex RAC technology. RAC internals have been explained by the authors in a manner which can be understood by DBA and NOT LIKE other books which run into pages with cache fusion explanations and diagrams which get more confusing and make it difficult to understand!! Authors have explained internals with clear examples making it comprehensible for real world DBA's be it junior or Sr. DBA. Network Practices – 9th chapter has been dedicated to most important networking component to RAC stack and I recommend it as a must read. After reading/understanding this chapter I can visualize how interconnect traffic flows and makes this RAC technology so elegant.

All the chapters are good and have given apt coverage of respective topics which is needed in day to day complex RAC implementation/administration. Also the book has wealth of information in terms of scripts and sqls used to explain topics which can be used / applied to real world RAC performance/administration issues. Chapter 2 has been dedicated to administration issues which is must read for all RAC DBA's. Chapter 4 does an excellent job of explaining new features related to RAC 12c.

My favorite chapters are chapters 6,9,10 and 11. Can't thank enough for contents presented in chapter 6. To me it looks almost all RAC problems/performances issues can be fixed by adopting do's and don’ts explained in this chapter. Chapter 10 and 11 will equip you with skills needed to troubleshoot most complex RAC problems. Chapter 10 explains RAC cache fusion related wait events which will make issue analysis very scientific, systematic and most of all easy!!

To sum up this book is a bible for RAC professionals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A bridge from single instance to RAC 29. Oktober 2013
Von Mohamed Houri - Veröffentlicht auf
Reading a technical book needs to match a desire of learning and/or an interest of mastering a feature. Reading, to be fruitful, should be also coupled with practicing and testing. This is what I did with several chapters of this book. The content of the book reveals to be an excellent reading, elegantly written. There are pictures in this book that let me repeating all the day ’’a picture is worth a 1000 words’’.

I am not going to repeat myself here again as I have already reviewed this book and published this review in my blog


I just want to emphasize that I still have not finished savoring this book and, since I read it, I am very impatient to embark working on RAC in order to use this book as a reference. It is definitely a worth buying book.
