What is Oracle Grid Infrastructure – A Free Tutorial
What is Grid Infrastructure? (Hint: It is not Grid Control.)
It is still possible to run an Oracle database without Oracle Grid Infrastructure. But is it sensible? And, if you want to use ASM – which we strongly recommend – you need GI!
In this tutorial you will learn how Grid Infrastructure can replace (or complement) third party products for RAID, network management, and high availability. At the same time, using these facilities can improve performance dramatically. Grid Infrastructure is the way Oracle is moving, and we want to show you that it is not necessarily complicated and can indeed make your life simpler. It can also save you money.
