Re: Is RAC DOA?

At least I think I once said something like this:

If you can't get a big enough box - consider RAC.

You usually can get a big enough box, but perhaps it's from a vendor you 
don't like or don't buy stuff from, and then you can be forced to this 
decision for political reasons (for instance if your policy is to use 
Intel boxes with a few CPU's in each).
