RAC Attack is a free curriculum and platform for hands-on learning labs related to Oracle RAC (cluster database), motivated by the belief that the best way to learn RAC is through lots of hands-on experience. The original contributors were Jeremy Schneider, Dan Norris and Parto Jalili. This curriculum has been used since 2008 by organizers of events, by instructors in classes and by individuals at home. Its goal is to help students learn about Oracle RAC cluster databases through guided examples.

RAC Attack differs in depth from other tutorials currently available.

  • Every keystroke and mouse click is carefully documented here.
  • The process is covered from the very beginning to the very end – from the very first installation of the Virtual Hypervisor on your laptop to various experiments on your running cluster database… with everything in between.
  • The labs in the main workbook have been tested thoroughly and repeatedly.
