220.127.116.11 Real Application Clusters Certified with EBS 11i
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Oct 13, 2008
So many Notes, so little time... You might have caught my recent article that touched on scaling up your E-Business Suite Release 11i environment with Real Application Clusters for reporting purposes or to improve your environment's overall performance and fault tolerance. If you're wondering whether this applies to EBS 18.104.22.168 environments running the 11gR1 22.214.171.124 database, the answer is, "Yes."
For details, see:
- Using Oracle 11g Release 1 Real Application Clusters and Automatic Storage Management with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (Metalink Note 455398.1)
This document describes how to migrate Oracle Applications Release 11i (Release 11.5.10) running on a single database instance to an Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) environment running Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (126.96.36.199) with Automatic Storage Management (ASM).
RAC & ASM are Not Corequisites
We certify the E-Business Suite with Real Application Clusters with Automatic Storage at the same time, since customers often deploy them together. However, just because we document these two options together doesn't mean that one requires the other. In other words, it's also possible to deploy Real Application Clusters without Automatic Storage Management, and vice versa.
11gR1 Upgrade Feedback Wanted
By the way, I am extremely interested in hearing from any Apps customers moving to the 11g database. If you've been working on an 11gR1 upgrade, I'd be grateful if you could either post a comment or drop me a private email about your experiences so far.
