Long time Oracle DBA currently using 11gR2 RAC on Soalris and RHEL5 OS platforms. We are looking at going to Exadata just now and I have no experience or training in it. Have looked at some references in MOS as well as in Amazon, but just wondering if anyone in this forum would be willing to suggest any good white papers or related documentation for both an overview as well as an implentation that they have found helpful. Just a simple question, but appreciate any guidance.
There are a few Exadata specific parameters but you should feel right at home running 11.2 on Oracle Enterprise Linux. I bought the Kindle version of Expert Oracle Exadata and it was a good introduction. After I got access to the Cell Servers I was able to get the official Exadata documentation which is very thorough.
