Amihay, I have built Oracle Clusterware clusters to support custom applications. It works quite well. For our case, we used OCFS2 (our platform was Linux) to support the common filesystem/storage requirement. For databases, you could also have used ASM. I would suggest using Oracle Clusterware 11g, even if you're not using Oracle Database 11g. In our case, we had some Oracle single-instance databases running at 10g R2 and some other custom applications as well. In order to avoid an upgrade later and benefit from all the latest fixes and enhancements, we used Oracle Clusterware 11g. Results were very positive. You should review the whitepaper on managing third-party applications with Oracle Clusterware. It is at I'd also recommend the recently-updated whitepaper on protecting single-instance Oracle Databases with Clusterware at One last note--you don't have to wait for anything; 11g is available right now for all the most popular platforms. Good luck!

I wander if anyone has experience with that (bad or good)? I’ve heard from oracle consult that is better to wait to 11g (…what a surprise) to use this feature.
