Presentation Title

Avoiding Common RAC Problems


RAC doesn't work for everyone in every situation, that's a fact. However, in many cases, RAC can work and work well if configured and used properly. Some issues are caused by simple misconfiguration, others are more complex like application-related logic issues that only surface in RAC environments. There are some issues that appear with a relatively high frequency and many of them can be fixed without knowledge of internals. Specifically, this session will review common issues in the areas of networking, storage, people, applications, and testing, examining the issues and their solutions.
