RAC one node license

Currently Being Moderated
Hi all,
we are running several rac systems license for EE. So we plan to switch from normal rac EE to "RAC ONE NODE"

Does anyone can tell me if the normal rac license to use "rac one node" or does we need the "rac one node" option ?

Thanks *T

    Hi tbrinkmann,

    DO you know that "Rac one node" option is not a RAC option. The main purpose of RAC ONE NODE option is opportunity to transfer your application from one node to another one (it means that in this case you will have a RAC configuration but only for 30 min.) for patching the OS or hardware. RAC one node uses OMotion technology that guaranty that all application users migrate to another node in 30 mins time.

    Again, RAC ONE NODE is not the RAC option and if you use RAC option you should pay for RAC option. If you need the RAC ONE NODE feature you should buy RAC ONE NODE option in addition to the RAC option.

    Best regards,
    Gennady

    Re,
    so that is not really the point.
    "RAC" costs around 25k per cpu and "rac one node" around 10 so the question is if we do use "rac one node" instead of lets say "normal rac" Does we can use our current license or does we need to buy new licenses.

    RAC costs more....Oracle make benefit :-?
    Thanks again

    RAC and RAC ONE NODE are two DIFFERENT Oracle Database options (like partitioning, advanced security and etc.), so if you use the RAC - you buy RAC, if you use RAC ONE NODE - you buy RAC ONE NODE.
    It's like you are asking if we by Partitioning option, could we use advanced security? Of course not.

    The point is, RAC ONE NODE provides an opportunity to create a normal RAC only for 30 mins (for moving users from one node to another one), so that is why it costs less than normal RAC.
