I have been planning on publishing more Hands On Labs for Data Guard on Oracle’s Technology Network using the Amazon Elastic Cloud (EC2) as the lab systems. But while I am working on more of them I thought I should post a note about the “OpenWorld 2009 Active Data Guard Hands On Lab” that we have already published. Please head for http://www.oracle.com/technology/deploy/availability/htdocs/adg_hol_2009.html for a set of exercises designed to introduce you to Active Data Guard in Oracle 11g Release 2 as well as some basic configuration and testing exercises. On that page is the download link for the handbook where you will find instructions on how to get going with my Amazon Cloud Machine (AMI) image and all the exercises.
I am hoping to do a new and improved version of this hands on lab at OpenWorld 2010 which will include Active Data Guard functionality that I just did not have time to get into last year’s lab. That new Hands On Lab will be published on OTN after OpenWorld.
Keep an eye on this category for announcements on any other training.
