You might want to look up 'stretch RAC'

One useful article is Oracle's wwhite paper

Currently, we don’t have a license for RAC, therefore we aren’t using it. We have one application in particular that is required to be available as close to 7 x 24 x 365 as possible. One other requirement is that the redundancy includes physical disk, with one set of disks in one location and the redundant set in another location. In looking at RAC, it appears that a shared disk (or disk group) is used which doesn’t satisfy the second requirement. So far, I have not found a description of RAC that shows it using more than one disk / disk group for redundancy. What is the best way to accomplish the second requirement?
