I posted about How to start about Exadata Learning? A book is a good way for learning. Last week, I got Achieving Extreme Performance with Oracle Exadata book from Amazon.
Achieving Extreme Performance with Oracle Exadata book has 2 PARTS (10 Chapters):
- PART I: Features and Foundations
- PART II: Best Practices
This book on PART (I) introduces us to learn about Oracle 11g Enterprise Edition Features. On Oracle Exadata Database Machine uses Oracle Database 11gR2, Partitioning, Parallel, Compression, Resource Manager, ASM and RAC (Grid Infrastructure). So we should know about them before maintain Exadata. On part (I) explains about Exadata Software Features and Exdata Machine Platform HW Components also.
On PART (II) was written about Best Practices. Example: Managing the Exadata Database Machine/HA and Backup Strategies/Exadata with DW and OLTP/...
We will learn more idea/sample for Exadata management.
However, we can learn more on Oracle Library and Oracle Support.
