Upcoming webinar: Oracle high availability with DRBD and Pacemaker

April 20, 2010

We’re sticking with databases for our current round of webinars. Up next is an overview of Oracle high availability clustering on Linux.

In this 45-minute presentation, we will show you how to quickly and easily configure an Oracle database with an associated TNS Listener in a failover configuration, how to monitor both your database and your listener for failures, and how to have Pacemaker automatically intervene and recover from outages.

Brought to you in association with our friends over at Novell, we’ll showcase Oracle in combination with SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension.

This webinar is scheduled for April 28, 2010 at 1500 UTC.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As all of our webinars, this one requires registration — but we’ve made things easier for you. Just fill in the registration form right here and you’re good to go!

As part of the deal, DRBD will soon be available in a version supporting SuperSockets — which means you’ll be able to use Dolphin Express cards as a drop-in replacement for the Gigabit Ethernet cards you now typically run DRBD replication over. And you’ll be able to use Dolphin Express for MySQL High Availability in applications where MySQL Cluster is not the ideal choice, too.
