  1. Really good book. I found it very useful as it covers almost all topics from DBA prospective. Information is technical enough for an experienced DBA or Developer. Book is well structured and it is easy to follow the material cover to cover. Up to date information in all aspects (Oracle binary set up, OS , networking and development).

    Very useful appendix, which guides you through various tasks.

    Easy to find information you require.

    One of the best (if not the best) Oracle 10g RAC books on the market.

    Of course, it cannot cover literally all topics, but it is definitely a great effort.

    Thank you Murali!

  2. As compared to the 370 pages provided by Oracle as docu for RAC, this book with its nearly 700 pages and lots of info and examples is brilliant.

    I have two years Oracle 10g RAC experience, but I have found in this book very valuable information about how RAC works, what is behind all components and all kind of “inside information” one could not find in Oracle documentation.

    Except some typos (understandable, given the rush to print a good book about RAC) this book is clearly a BUY.

  3. This book has proven to be an excellent guide for graduating my team on to 10g RAC. It has become a must-read for all our existing DBAs/new hires. The details that Murali lends to any topic allow us to understand the topic best. His narration is matched with his technicalese.

    We are eagerly looking foward to his and Nitin’s next book on ASM.

  4. The grammar is terrible, it’s filled with bad analogies and information that should have been assumed (e.g., RAID – how long has this technology been around?). There’s a couple good nuggets but overall, it’s like bad reality TV, %5 content surrounded by 95% filler.
