Maintaining near-flawless database uptime is a source of anxiety for countless database administrators. In Oracle 24x7 Tips & Techniques, Venkat S. Devraj has compiled an unprecedented collection of guidelines and suggestions as a "working Oracle professional's book on high availability."
Although it is the author's aim to avoid detailed theory and focus on practical solutions to the problem, the early portions of the book contain some high-level topics such as defining your organization's exact uptime requirements and precisely characterizing what constitutes an emergency for your installation. These areas are often quickly glossed over in other guides, but the presentation here is precise and quite useful in striving for the holy grail of 24-hour uptime.
The meat of the book is a series of targeted techniques for architecting a truly reliable system. Devraj looks at it all--from hardware to operating systems to internal configurations of Oracle and wise maintenance procedures. He does an excellent job of putting each topic in perspective with explanations of exactly what impact each strategy will have.
There's a plethora of useful information here. However, it is decidedly aimed at seasoned Oracle professionals. New Oracle users and administrators may find themselves lost, but more expert Oracle jockeys will be grateful for this material. --Stephen W. Plain
Topics covered: Hardware component selection, operating systems and network issues, application analysis, installation and configuration, upgrades, migrations, backup and recovery procedures, database maintenance, growth management, log interpretation, corruption identification, Oracle Parallel Server, advanced replication, and third-party solutions.

In fact, this book paid for itself when one of our (internal)customers decided to go with asynchronous replication for the Oracle data bases that support 24x7 access to our nuclear generation plant, and we had to very quickly come up-to-speed on how to implement AR.
The final chapter in "Oracle 24x7 Tips & Techniques" talks about the high availibility features that are available with Oracle8i, for those of you who are looking at 8i or have already converted over to it.
This book focuses on making Oracle highly available and resilient, but also touches on related aspects, such as hardware, operating systems and networks. What I particularly liked is the way the book begins, with an exceptionally well-written chapter on identifying your uptime requirements. All of the material here applies to availability and reliability of enterprise-wide systems, not just Oracle. In fact, Parts I and II of this book should be read by anyone who is responsible for implementing and managing a 24x7 enterprise regardless of whether they are a DBA because the information in the first two parts of this eight-part book will have the whole team (SAs, DBAs, network analysts and service delivery/support staff) using a common framework.
The remaining six parts span chapters 7 through 20 and are specific to Oracle. There is an overwhelming amount of information here. What makes getting through these chapters so hard is the fact that nearly every page has some important tip, fact or technique. The sheer number of these, all of which are important, will consume two or three highlighters before you get to the end of the book
Overall, this book is essential for Oracle DBAs, and deserves a place in the library of every architect and operations manager in large 24x7 enterprises that use Oracle .
