NEXT -- What to expect:

Experienced RAC ATTACK volunteers will walk you through an installation of the Oracle 12c RAC environment on your laptop, explore advanced RAC related setup scenarios or work on solving more advanced RAC related challenges.

During the workshop you will learn how to setup one of the most complex infrastructures on your laptop. You will learn how to configure and clone virtual machines, how to create and setup internal and external virtual networks, create different storage types, setup a local DNS server and other challenging components.

After this workshop you will know how to setup a test/sandbox environment for virtually any product.

Attendees have 3 options for exercises during the RAC ATTACK:

    1. RAC 12c installation - participants install Oracle Virtualbox, Oracle Linux, Oracle 12c RAC and configure those components to work together.

    2. RAC 12c advanced tasks - for those who have 12c RAC on their laptops already the workshop has to offer to go through a set of advanced scenarios. Each scenario focused on a particular RAC 12c features to learn and explorer.

    3. RAC freestyle - join in groups to work on RAC related challenges.

FINALLY: Set up your laptop

To participate in the workshop, participants need to bring their own laptop. Recommended specification:
