Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning Oracle 11g - Real Application Clusters Tutorial," a course focused on Oracle's capabilities for creating high-availability areas within a database using disk drive clustering.
The Oracle RAC system is technology within Oracle's database software that allows multiple databases to share a common set of hard drives. The RAC system allows database managers to establish high availability areas, automatic failover between database nodes, and increased throughput capability for individual nodes, in general increasing the efficiency and reliability of high-demand databases.
Infinite Skills Learning Oracle 11g - Real Application Clusters teaches all the concepts and techniques for utilizing the RAC system to improve an Oracle database.
Course author Steve Hamilton is a database management specialist with 20 years' experience working with Oracle, Sysbase, and SQL Server. He has consulted for a number of Fortune 500 companies including TD Ameritrade and ConAgra. He currently runs a consulting company, Database by Design, and trains both locally and internationally.
The course begins by explaining RAC, looking at the basic requirements for its implementation, and the various installations and definitions involved in initiating a RAC database.
Once the database is installed, Hamilton shows how to create the cluster database with disk groups, create the RAC Listener, and identify and control RAC components.
The course continues with chapters on tuning RAC performance, configuring application transaction application failover, and performing diagnostics to identify and correct RAC problems.
"This course is focused on learning to provide high availability for mission-critical database apps," Hamilton explains. "RAC is designed so that databases have high-availability with little or no downtime."
