Is Oracle RAC supported in the Amazon cloud?
It seems like it wouldn't be supported due to the network setup

Have you come across customers running Oracle on the Amazon cloud? Any examples?

any info please email thanks

    As you guessed, RAC isn't currently supported on AWS since EC2 does not provide the necessary clustering and shared read-write storage infrastructure today.

    As far as the customer example is concerned, Harvard Medical School is one of the known customers. You can find more details about Harvard usage of Oracle on EC2 by visiting Oracle Cloud Computing Center ( - look under the "Customer Success Story" box on the right hand side.
