Oracle RAC Policy-Managed Database (PMD) is a powerful but so far rarely used feature introduced in Oracle Database 11g
Release 2 to automate the instance administration in a dynamic, multi-node cluster.
The aim of this presentation is to review how PMD works, how to implement and administer it successfully, and how to
benefit from this technology compared to the traditional administrator-managed deployment.
These slides are from the session I've done at Collaborate14, but re-branded with my company's template.
