I’m Newbie to Global Data Services, Where to start?

Oracle introduced new product to manage Global Data Services from 12c as one of new features by using the underlying Global Service Manager software.  This product is highly recommended for the environment of mixed combinations of high availability solutions such as: RAC, Clustering, DG/ADG, Oracle Golden Gate etc. However at this point this product is not familiar yet and down the line am sure many of the customers will prefer to take advantage of this feature. Apart from that technically there might be many questions such as, am using and managing services(local) already but why i have to go for Global data services?   where it be useful for me? how to configure? how to manage? what are the pros and cons? so on… Based on these i have wrote set of articles purely on Global Data Services starting from introduction until troubleshooting and various other scenarios.
