RAC Attack

The RAC Attack Ninjas are returning to Tech14!

Throughout the conference, you can drop in to see RAC Attack in the Exhibition Hall - no need to book.

With the help of the ninjas, you can build a real life Oracle RAC database on your own laptop using virtual machines.

What you’ll need

  • A laptop (though there will be a few spare)
  • A USB-powered external hard drive with 100G of free space or an SSD with appropriate space

The labs are designed for Windows-based laptops but we’ll help Mac OS X and Linux users as well.

H/W requirements are on www.racattack.org and you can also start doing preparation steps at home, to save time at the conference.

If you want to take your environment home after Tech14, we recommend downloading Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle Database and Grid installation media. Remember to agree with the licences online!

If you don't have Linux installed to prepare the image in the last list and didn't proceed to Linux install at home, just go to http://bit.ly/Q45XKo and download two files for Oracle Database and one for Grid Infrastructure. Remember to download 64 bit versions of Linux and Oracle media!
