Oracle Real Application Clusters in Oracle VM Environments

Oracle Real Application Clusters in Oracle VM Environments

Running sophisticated or highly-available applications in virtualized environments has been a challenge because of their incompatibility with commonly-used software-based virtualization approaches. This white paper explains how you can create a software-based virtualization infrastructure that offers high availability and grid readiness. Highlights of this technique include:

  • A cluster database with a shared cache architecture to overcome limitations of traditional shared-nothing and shared-disk approaches and provide high scalability
  • Ability to transform a server farm into a cluster for inter-node communication
  • A simple storage management interface that is consistent across all server and storage platforms
  • Ensures access to mission-critical in the event of a system failure
  • Minimizes risk of single-points-of-failure
