Oracle Database Appliance RAC in a box Some Strings Attached


Published on

Oracle Database Appliance is an engineered system that is geared towards Small and Medium businesses but has all the bells and whistles for enterprise deployments. This talk will focus on Oracle Database Appliance deployment as a consolidation platform as well as as a development platform for rapidly deploying databases. We will talk about the Deployment process , the patching process and the best practices built into The Oracle Database Appliance. We will also talk about the DBA's role for managing the ODA as well as security considerations
