Oracle RAC Books
Oracle 10g Real Application ClustersHandbook Although this book is lightweight compared to other Oracle books, it has enough detail to give you what youneed to manage RAC, however i did have to consult theweb in order to obtain more detailed information and toclarify certain points.Oracle 10g High Availability with Rac,Flashback and Data GuardThis book had small section on RAC and helped clarifysome of the points in the above book High Availability and ClusteringWhen you have very critical systems that require to be online 24x7 then you need a HA solution(High Availability), you have to weigh up the risk associated with downtime against the cost of asolution. HA solutions are not cheap and they are not easy to manage. HA solutions need to bethoroughly tested as it may not be tested in the real world for months. I had a solution that run for almost a year before a hardware failure caused a failover, this is when your testing before handcomes into play.As I said before HA comes with a price, and there are a number of HA technologies
Fault Tolerance - this technology protects you from hardware failures for exampleredundant PSU, etc
Disaster Recovery - this technology protects from operational issues such as a Data Center  becoming unavailable
Disaster Tolerance - this technology is used to prepare for the above two, the mostimportant of the three technologies.Every company should plan for unplanned outages, this costs virtually nothing, knowing what todo in a DR situation is half the battle, in many companies people make excuses not to design a DR  plan (it costs to much, we don't have the redundant hardware,etc). You cannot make theseassumptions until you design a DR plan, the plan will highlight the risks and the costs that go withthat risk, then you can make the decision on what you can and cannot afford, there is no excuse notto create DR plan.
