Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The blazingly fast Oracle Exadata Database Machine is being embraced by thousands of large-scale users worldwide — in government, the military, corporate enterprise, and wherever "extreme" database performance is required. The Oracle Exadata Handbook is today's most authoritative and practical guide to administering Oracle Exadata with maximum reliability, effectiveness, performance, and efficiency.


Written by several internationally-respected Oracle technology experts, it brings together core day-to-day knowledge, experiences, best practices, tips, and tricks you won't find anywhere else. Covering both 11g and 12c versions of the underlying Oracle Exadata software, it provides hands-on, step-by-step coverage of all this, and more:

  • Working with Oracle Exadata Compute Nodes and Storage Cells
  • Gaining maximum performance by combining Exadata Flash Cache, Smart Scans, and Cell Offload Processing
  • Taking full advantage of Exadata Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC)
  • Efficiently performing day-to-day Exadata administration tasks
  • Performing Exadata Backup/Recovery/DR with RMAN and Data Guard
  • Managing, monitoring and administering Exadata with OEM12c
  • Migrating to Oracle Exadata from other platforms
  • Using Oracle Exadata with the ZFS Storage Appliance
  • Systematically tuning Oracle Exadata for performance
  • Consolidating within the Exadata Database Cloud
  • Mastering the most valuable Oracle Exadata tools and utilities

Throughout, actionable ideas are summarized in bullet points for fast access. Chapters even contain "Job Interview Questions" sections identifying issues DBAs should be ready for when interviewing for positions involving Oracle Exadata.
