My colleagues Tim Read, Gia-Khan Nguyen, and Bob Bart have recently released an excellent white paper which cuts through the fog surrounding the complementary functions of Oracle Clusterware, RAC, and Solaris Cluster. The paper is titled Sun™ Cluster 3.2 Software: Making Oracle Database 10g R2 RAC even More “Unbreakable.”
We have people ask us about why they should use Solaris Cluster when Oracle says they could just use Clusterware. Daily. Sometimes several times per day. The answer is not always clear, and we view the products as complementary rather than exclusionary. This white paper shows why you should consider both products which work in concert to provide very highly available services. I would add that Sun and Oracle work very closely together to make sure that the Solaris platform running Oracle RAC is the best Oracle platform in the world. There is an incredible team of experts working together to make this happen.
Kudos to Tim, Gia-Khan, and Bob for making this readily available for Sun and Oracle customers.
