I have read a book named "Oracle Database Administration for Microsoft SQL Server DBAs", and I really liked it. The book's goal is to introduce Oracle to SQL Server data professionals, to explain similarities and differences between these two very common RDBMS. This book is filled with practical, real life information, necessary to perform daily activities of a production DBA. The book can really prevent us from missteps when we try to use Oracle as if it were SQL Server. It has the following chapters:
* Oracle Internals - I was especially fascinated by the description of transaction process flow, which is different in Oracle
* Oracle Installation, which also describes a few useful Linux commands, and connectivity
* Database Definitions and Setup (databases and schemas have different meanings)
* DBA Tools
* Database Backup, Restore, and Recovery
* Database Maintenance
* Performance and Tuning
* PL/SQL (which is VERY different from T-SQL)
* High Availability Architecture
Overall, this is a must-read book for any SQL Server professional intending to improve their Oracle skills.
TO THE VENDOR: The product is exactly what I looked for and expected to receive, which to me is enough grounds for a 5-star rating. Thanks!
