Today's question from an Ops Center user:
"Can we cluster Ops Center deployments using, say, Solaris Cluster? How would we do it?"
Well, there are a couple of possible ways that you can install the Enterprise Controller so that it can fail over.
The first method is to use the documented HA installation, which uses Oracle Clusterware, two or more Enterprise Controller systems, and a remote customer-managed database. The procedures for this kind of installation are documented in the Oracle Solaris and Linux install guides.
The second is to install the Enterprise Controller in an LDom controlled by Oracle Solaris Cluster, and then have the Enterprise Controller fail over between hosts via Cluster. You can use an embedded database or a remote database with this solution.
