RE: RAC h/w basic costs

RAC will significantly increase the cost and complexity of the database architecture. So you have to ask yourself what 'problem' are you trying to solve by implementing RAC. For me the key issues that RAC addresses are: 1. Allows you to 'scale out' database resources - so you can start small and grow outwards by adding nodes2. Eliminates (reduces) application downtime in the event of a server failure3. Allows you to run your database on more hardware resources than are available on one large SMP server If you don't have 1 or more of those requirements then why invest in a premium product which will require a large investment in time and money..?

Yeah, i have gone through it before. They already have some RAC licenses and want to make use of them.

Maybe this is a little bit off topic but do you have any reasons why
you want to migrate into RAC ?
Is it a vendor requirement or strategic decision ?
There was a very interesting discussion on oracle-l about reasons to not use RAC.
