"Server-side TAF" is a reference to storing the TAF configuration info in the server, and having the client pull it down at connect-time. Not well documented, but very interesting. Look out for surprising rules of precedence - the server configuration always over-rides the client tnsnames.ora!
I've configured TAF for automatic failover to a standby (along with dataguard broker automatic failover) -- but I haven't configured TAF for both RAC and DG in the same database. It would be cool to hear if someone else out there on the list has done this. :)
