Oracle 10g Maximum Availability Architecture (RAC, Data Guard, Grid Control)

This class will teach the fundamentals of Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), Data Guard and Grid Control from a High Availability (HA) perspective. Students will learn the architecture, installation and configuration of RAC, Data Guard and Grid Control from the perspective of Oracle's Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA). This is an excellent bootstrap class to get DBAs started with RAC, Data Guard and Grid Control.
Students must have a fundamental background in Oracle database administration.
