IOUG Collaborate Deep Dive Slides – Deploying Oracle Database 11gR2 for High Availability

This is a quick blog post from Collaborate 2012 in Vegas. I’m only doing one session this year, but it’s a very long session — I’ve just done a deep dive on deploying Oracle Database 11gR2 for High Availability.

This is ultimately a good news!
