  • Oracle RAC Attack 12c [CON10157] – Sunday October 25th, 10am to 1pm.  As a system administrator, developer, or DBA this is the perfect workshop to start Oracle OpenWorld 2015 on user group Sunday. You get to install or test an Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) 12c cluster using Oracle VM VirtualBox on your laptop. Whether you have or haven’t worked with Oracle RAC 12c before, you will enjoy this hands-on experience performing installations or taking a jump-start to test features of your application against Oracle RAC 12c. You can ask for help at any point or discuss your experiences with Oracle RAC experts, ACEs, and ACE Directors. Note: Participants must use their own laptop with recommended specifications of any 64-bit OS that supports Oracle VM VirtualBox, 8 GB RAM, and 45 GB free HDD space. SSDs are recommended.
