This book covers a lot of technical ground in a concise, well-written manner. This is far from a regurgitation of the Oracle documentation. The authors do a great job of showing how Oracle database features work together to cover HA, DR, and data protection needs. I like the practical "workshop" sections throughout the book-- they help you understand the features by doing examples. They build upon each other as you progress, covering the whole architecture.

I recommend this book highly for your reference collection, specifically for it's worthy how-to nature. It will get you going and you can use the 11g documentation to dig deeper where desired.

As a long time Oracle RAC DBA (version 8 OPS), I enjoyed reading this book and putting the tips into practice. It is a great starting point for DBAs new to the 11gR2 Grid architecture who need to support
and manage RAC environments. Some nice touches include the coverage of Oracle VM for virtualizing RAC as well as tips for architecting 11gR2. While it is not as deep as other RAC books such as Oracle 11g Real Application Cluster Essentials (PACKT Press) and Oracle 11g RAC (Apress), the book does a fantastic job of teaching beginners new to 11gR2 RAC.

Simple:
- 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).

This would be a great book for those are unfamiliar with Oracle RAC, Data Guard, and Flashback.

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.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
1)Doesn't get into too much details into the working of Oracle RAC, Data Guard, and Flashback.
