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

As you know Oracle Data Guard provides high availability, data protection, and disaster recovery. It provides a comprehensive set of services that create, maintain, manage, and monitor one or more standby databases.

If you begin working with Data Guard and you want to learn quickly, I would like to mention a book around this area that I just finished to review:

  1. Hello Bertrand,
    thanks for this review. From my experience, both Data Guard and Active Data Guard are elegant and relatively simple tools, yet their benefits sometimes are not well understood by the business community.
    PS Liked your R scripts, too. Interesting way to present data using R – and why not?
