As you can see all the authors for the book are managers within Oracle. This is very apparent in the flavor of the book. We have a couple of Exadaten and much of the detail needed to run these machines is missing from this volume. It is also missing from the Oracle supplied documentation so the lack is unsurprising.

What will you get if you buy this book? You will get an overview of the technology and something of how the machine can be applied. It is useful from that perspective. It will give you an idea about capabilities and some suggestions for how to perform some tasks.

One feature for the Exadata, for example, is called instance caging. It is basically an alliance between the old Database Resource Manager feature of prior releases fused with the I/O Resource Manager which is new and is a feature of the storage cell software. There are some nice conceptual diagrams in the book and some clear explanations about how the pieces fit together to cage an instance, but there is an utter lack of detail and only a rather superficial example. I judge the authors achieved the level of explanation they intended to reach.

If you are a DBA tasked with administering this machine this book will be introductory in nature. If you are a manager of DBA's this may well be just a little more than you need. If you are a higher level non-technical manager without much Oracle Background this book will be more than you are prepared for.

Achieving Extreme Performance with Oracle Exadata book has 2 PARTS (10 Chapters):
- PART I: Features and Foundations
- PART II: Best Practices
This book on PART (I) introduces us to learn about Oracle 11g Enterprise Edition Features. On Oracle Exadata Database Machine uses Oracle Database 11gR2, Partitioning, Parallel, Compression, Resource Manager, ASM and RAC (Grid Infrastructure). So we should know about them before maintain Exadata. On part (I) explains about Exadata Software Features and Exdata Machine Platform HW Components also.

On PART (II) was written about Best Practices. Example: Managing the Exadata Database Machine/HA and Backup Strategies/Exadata with DW and OLTP/...
We will learn more idea/sample for Exadata management.

For those lucky few who are already at a place using Exadata I am jealous. For those of us who are not . . . this is a great book to begin your understand how revolutionary Oracle Exadata is to the database world. This is NOT a book for light reading, having the working experience with previous Oracle technology such as: RAC, ASM, DB Resource Manager definitely helps out and makes the reading easier. If you don't have the previous experience with the above technologies, Chapter 2 of the book give a quick refresh/high level view to help frame how Oracle Exadata takes advantages of the previously mention Oracle Technology. The book is well written and make logical progression from easy concepts to more complex concepts.

Hopefully Oracle will decide to release more documentation for Oracle Exadata as the market matures.

If you want a deeper understanding of Exadata go with the book Expert Oracle Exadata (EOE).
I own both books and the guys at Enketic wrote EOE.
So the EOE book is free of the marketing push and gets into the internals of Exadata with more consideration towards how does this work and can you prove this works.
