Thursday 29th  March,2012 at 16:00 UK / 08:00 PST: “Migrate  single instance to RAC - 360 degrees (tools, tips and techniques)”


Oracle Database administrators have to cope with numerous challenges when migrating an existing non-cluster environment to a cluster environment. One of the most significant challenges a DBA faces is to migrate/convert an existing single instance to RAC.
Oracle provides several easy methods to carry out the procedure, so it is important to know which method best fits your needs and requirements.
The core objective of this presentation is to give you an overview about different methods for migrating an existing single instance to RAC, and help you find the most suitable one for your situation. The session will also explain how to perform the migration in order to minimize the downtime and to improve (speed up) the migration duration whilst dealing with VLDB.
A live Q+A with Syed Jaffar Hussain will follow the presentation.
