You can create an active/passive cluster for any service susceptible to be clustered ( web server, application server, database server - ASM instance + production databases + listeners, etc...- ) using the provided clustering solution by Oracle - clusterware - free of charge if the cluster is hosted by Oracle Enterprise Linux distribution.

Installing an configuring the clusterware software, the shared storage ( if needed ) and adding the appropriated handmade scripts for start, stop and check the protected services, you have a cheap active/passive cluster solution.

I've no http access now, try to search in google
