If you’re an Oracle DBA who’s just been tasked with upgrading your 9i, 10g, or 11g database to 12c, then you are in luck: Our new book, Oracle Database Upgrade, Migration & Transformation Tips & Techniques, is due out from Oracle Press in June 2015.
My co-author Ed Whalen and I have spent most of 2014 compiling best practices, techniques and tips about how to best migrate and transform data as well as upgrade Oracle databases. Our new book is packed with practical advice on planning your upgrade/migration/transformation project, and we’ve included dozens of examples and checklists on how to tackle your project with the best-in-breed Oracle utilities and techniques. We also discuss in depth the best techniques for migrating your databases to Exadata and how to leverage the latest tools in Oracle Database 12c – including multitenancy – to quickly clone and upgrade pluggable databases.
You can also pre-order our book at amazon.com. Just like all Oracle Press books, it will be available in e-book format as well.
