we (datacenter for banks in little austria) are using sun cluster (sc) as a solution for our mission critical databases. nowadays sc 3.2 under solaris 10. oracle is well supported under sc and in the last 3-4 years this solution has been proven to be very stable. only drawback is the failover time for the database(s) which is between 1-4 minutes. but it depends on the application using the database if this is a problem.

feel free to ask further questions
