Deploying Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 with ASM on AIX 5.3 with an IBM DS4700 or DS4800 Storage SubsystemPosted: 21/12/2010
Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) is a high-availability option to Oracle Database. Oracle RAC supports the deployment of a single database across a cluster of servers, providing excellent fault tolerance, performance, and scalability.
The industry is taking note of Oracle RAC’s growing importance in a wide range of customer implementations across all industries for transaction processing and data warehousing applications.
This document presents an overview and some tips and techniques in deploying the Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 database with Oracle RAC on the IBM® AIX® operating system using IBM storage.
The database storage is administered using the Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM) feature.
The procedure of creating a simple configuration using a two-node cluster is used as an example to illustrate the principles of performing this type of implementation.
Actual implementations vary in complexity and require significant expertise in all of the technologies involved.
This document is intended to illustrate any deviations from the Oracle installation guide and any enhancements in implementation.
This document does not provide a comprehensive reference for installing all of these components.
For full implementation instructions, please refer to the product documentation for the hardware being used, for the AIX operating system, for the Oracle Database, and for Oracle Clusterware.
