Oracle Clusterware is portable cluster software that allows clustering of independent servers so that they cooperate as a single system. Oracle Clusterware was first released with Oracle Database 10g Release 1 as the required cluster technology for Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). Oracle Clusterware is an independent server pool infrastructure, which is fully integrated with Oracle RAC, capable of protecting any kind of application in a failover cluster. Oracle Clusterware 11g Release 2 sets a milestone in the development of Oracle’s server pool solution. Oracle Clusterware, combined with Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM), is Oracle’s private cloud infrastructure software (Oracle Grid Infrastructure). The integration of these two technologies sets a new level in the management of private cloud based applications.
It seems complicated to setup :(
The Oracle Grid Infrastructure provides the necessary components to manage high availability (HA) for any business critical application. Oracle Grid Infrastructure Bundled Agents are Oracle Grid Infrastructure components that support a complete HA framework for applications. This framework is an intuitive, ready to use HA solution that offers pre-defined Oracle Grid Infrastructure resource configurations and agents to integrate applications, infrastructure resources and the Oracle RDBMS for complete HA.
Making Applications Highly Available Using Oracle ClusterwareWhy applications :( ...I only want database highly available to save from more work, and not to worry my applications because i care only for the database. :)
In the past few days that you've had these forums threads opened you could have spent the time reading up and practicing.I want to practise but I do not know where to start right. It is quite frustrating if you practise the wrong way wasting your time and energy ;)
