Oracle DBA Pocket Guide (Paperback)
|Author: David C. Kreines|
|The Oracle database is one of the most popular in the world, and for good reason. It's compatible, scalable, portable, and capable of performing incredibly fast. The advantages Oracle holds over its competition come with a price, however--it's a highly complex database that's becoming more complex with every release. And this level of detail, of course, can begin to weigh on database administrators (DBAs). |
Fortunately, the "Oracle DBA Pocket Guide from O'Reilly is on the case. This handy reference is designed to help administrators make more effective use of their time by presenting a compact summary of DBA tasks in an easy-to-use form. With this book by your side, you'll have instant access to the most important concepts, best practices, tips, and checklists.

Moreover, the "Oracle DBA Pocket Guide covers Oracle Database 9i, as well as its latest release, Oracle Database 10g.
