Oracle Database Instance Recovery Tutorial
Is It Possible to Corrupt an Oracle Database?
No, You Cannot – Not If It Is Properly Administered
Why? Because the mechanism of redo and undo is the best yet developed on this planet.
In this tutorial, Oracle Certified Master John Watson will explain redo, undo, commit, instance recovery and demonstrate why your database can never lose one row of committed data.
Learn what actually happens, in memory and on disc, when DML is issued. John will demonstrate that instance recovery is automatic, and unstoppable.
This is critical and essential knowledge for all Oracle Administrators and DBA students.
