I've built several clusters like the one Sreekanth described and it's been very beneficial. Note that this is single-instance failover, so no RAC licenses are required and Oracle Clusterware has no extra license cost (as long as you run it with Oracle Databases, Oracle Enterprise Linux, or some other Oracle product).
Good luck! Dan Prasad wrote:
All,I was at the the Openworld Conference today and attended Mr Chintala's presentation on Dell IT . It was very informative . As part the presentation he talked about the single instance cluster database which in the event of any node failure can be manually moved to another node . I will appreciate if anyone give me some idea or point me to any url/white papers on the implementation details.Thanks in Advance-Prasad
