Pro Oracle Database 12c RAC on Linux provides full-life-cycle guidance toward managing and optimizing Oracle Real Application Clusters in a Linux environment. Real Application Clusters, commonly abbreviated as RAC, is Oracle’s industry-leading architecture for scalable and fault-tolerant databases. RAC allows you to scale up and down by simply adding and subtracting inexpensive Linux servers. Redundancy provided by those multiple, inexpensive servers is the basis for the failover and other fault-tolerance features that RAC provides.

Pro Oracle Database 12c RAC on Linux gives a rock-solid and technically flawless foundation on which to build your RAC-management skills. The authors dissect the principles behind clustering and the Oracle RAC architecture, providing you the deep understanding needed for success in a RAC environment. Learn to manage the grid infrastructure, including the clusterware and ASM storage, and of course the RAC instances themselves. Learn to troubleshoot performance and other problems. You’ll even learn to correctly deploy RAC in a virtual-machine environment based upon Oracle VM, which is the only virtualization solution supported by Oracle Corporation.

RAC is a complex and powerful technology. It demands expertise in its deployment. You can’t just "wing it" in creating a RAC solution. All the authors on this book are seasoned experts. They offer in this book a rigorous and technically-correct treatment of RAC that helps you build a solid foundation of expertise and achieve success.

  • Rigorous and technically accurate content
  • Complete coverage of RAC administration and optimization
  • Up-to-date with the very latest RAC features
