Book Review: Oracle Data Guard 11gR2 Administration Beginner's Guide

Just finished review of book "Oracle Data Guard 11gR2 Administration Beginner's Guide” by authors, Mr. Emre Baransel and Mr. Nassyam Basha.

"Oracle Data Guard 11gR2 Administration Beginner's Guide” is an interesting book that takes one into the facets of Oracle database availability. The books takes the reader step by step on different aspects of environment settings , different configurations, implementation challenges and so on. The fascinating part of the book is the depiction of real world cases with screen snapshots.

A quick reference even for the seasoned data guard administrators on specific issues and the nuances of database role changes and reversals.Interestingly a dedicated chapter on Active Data Guard which explains how this feature can be harnessed in terms of offloading and better ROI.

Almost all, the parts of the book we can identify the authors Hands-On experience in "Oracle Data Guard" functionality with real world scenarios.

The following concepts the explanation and work-around was very impressive

1. Working with skip rules on a logical standby database
2. Data Guard tracing levels
3. Changing the protection mode with SQL*Plus
