The foundation of the Exadata family of products is the Oracle Exadata Database Machine (Database Machine). The Database Machine is a complete and fully integrated database system that includes all the components to quickly and easily deploy any enterprise database delivering the best performance. The Exadata Storage Server (Exadata storage or Exadata cells) is used as the storage for the Oracle Database in the Database Machine and is used to grow existing Database Machine deployments.However, I don't want to explain what is EXADATA? I'm just curious some idea: How to start about Exadata Learning?
I think someone who work as Oracle DBA need to know this answer. sure!!! Me too. If You have Exadata, It may easy for learning -)
Idea 1: Search "exadata" word on My Oracle Support, I guaratee it's useful.
