Right, but SE is maxxed out at 4 procs, so it will be a very small RAC configuration. Am I able to attach files to emails on this list? (just curious) Derek M.

Extra maintenance costs are a different story - I've never run RAC so can't comment on that. Regards, Brandon ________________________________ From: oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jeremy Schneider I can't imagine that you need to be paying those extra tens of thousands of dollars for RAC; won't the extra licensing and maintenance costs of RAC come out about the same as those three servers your eliminating?
