With all the anti-RAC sentiments being expressed in this thread, I have a question:

If not RAC, then what does everyone recommend in its place? A single SMP server would certainly be easier to administer, but then you're into forklift upgrades when you outgrow it.

I'm being pulled into a meeting later this morning to answer why we shouldn't put every db in RAC? Any white papers etc, stating why its a bad idea?

thanks, joe
