Thus this book sets a challenging goal for itself which I think it succeeds in accomplishing. While 'holistic' may be an overworked term in our culture, it is exactly that - a holistic HA solution - which is needed to meet these nascent business challenges and that solution is what Hart & Jesse have written. For example, the concept of incorporating aspects of performance tuning into the high availability view of the database is new to me, yet makes perfect sense. I had always viewed these as separate and independent DBA functions.
With each chapter, another brick is laid in what becomes a solid, highly-available wall:
RAC, Dataguard, Flashback Query, Rman Backup & Recovery, Streams - backed with the newest RDBMS features and performance tuning.
The book is well written and has very helpful labs. Understandably, it does not delve deeply into specific areas. Had the authors tried to cover every minute detail, we'd all be lugging a thousand pounds of books between home and work. At the same time, I think every topic is well covered and the depth of detail is good. Frankly, when it comes time to implement something like Dataguard, I'll have 10 references, white papers, etc. on my desk. This book is great for putting everything together under one roof and allowing one to see the big picture and how that picture is evolving.
As I get these features implemented, I expect to save a bundle on pager batteries!!!!!
Has steps linked to various chapters.
Reading, Second time will solve/Answer most of your questions.
This Book is very good- I have implemented HA with RAC / DR - successfully many times.
On the scale 1-5
RAC - 3
Uses Oracle provided kernel (Linux) with firewire (storage) Architecture, for beginners it might be helpful.
Missing GFS - Global file system implementation. Can be used instead of ocfs.
RAC - Oracle Installation - 4
Installation, always read documentation from Oracle.
Flashback - 3
Since this is neat/new feature - need more explanation. Explains implementing Flashback, not much on administration of Flashback.
DR - 5
DataGuard - 5
Very good steps and explanation - cannot go wrong implementing DR logical/Physical
TAF - 4
Good explanation of TAF - Yes you will be able to implement the TAF and load balance RAC env.
ASM - 3
This is a very powerful feature - Needs a separate chapter similar to DR/Dataguard.
Overall, I recommend this book and gives 5 stars
I would like to remark that both Dataguard (Chap7) and Streams (Chap 10) coverage is excellent and both provide a different direction for the HA arena.
A must read for those long trips traveling to customer sites.
