Path Detail

A highly available IT infrastructure is a critical success factor for businesses in today’s fast-moving and “always-on” economy. Unavailability of critical data or applications may have a significant cost to enterprises in terms of lost productivity and revenue, dissatisfied customers, and tarnished corporate image. Oracle provides a comprehensive set of industry-leading, high-availability technologies that are preintegrated and can be implemented at minimal cost.

The Oracle Database 11g High Availability focus area provides you with the knowledge and skills to implement high-availability Oracle technologies:

  • Real Application Clusters (RAC) provides a foundation for Oracle’s Enterprise Grid Computing architecture. RAC effectively creates a single database system that spans multiple hardware systems yet appears to the application as a single unified database. By completing the RAC recommended courses, you develop expertise in how to administer and deploy RAC to maximize the availability, performance, and scalability of enterprise applications.
  • Data Guard provides the technology to deploy and manage one or more standby copies of a production database in a local or remote data center. Learn to use a variety of data protection solutions that can safeguard your enterprise from costly downtimes due to complete site failures. And learn how to deploy and administer Data Guard to address your high availability and disaster recovery requirements.
  • Oracle Clusterware is a portable cluster software that allows clustering of single servers so that they cooperate as a single system. Oracle Clusterware also provides the required infrastructure for Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). Oracle Clusterware provides high availability for any kind of application. Oracle Clusterware is based on proven cluster technology and has been ported to all the operating systems certified for Oracle Real Application clusters. Oracle Clusterware is the most common clustering solution for Linux today and was one of the first fully supported clustering solutions for Linux.
  • Backup and recovery strategies are critical to protect enterprises from disaster. Learn to use Oracle Secure Backup to provide centralized tape backup management for your entire Oracle environment, including databases and file systems.
  • Oracle Streams is a data replication and integration that enables information sharing by extending the reach of database applications throughout the organization. Learn to use Oracle Streams to enable propagation of data, transactions, and events in a data stream either within a database or from one database to another.
  • With Information Lifecycle Management, you enforce data management policies using tools such as partitioning, compression, and data movement utilities. Learn to use Oracle ILM Assistant to manage the various information lifecycle attributes.
