Don't let that stop "experts" from trying to sell us RAC across the Pacific, for our Aus and US centres. I'm quite sure that's gonna work real swell for the DW, particularly with ours being AIX, theirs HPUX, a link between the two of 48Mbps and a daily change rate of 500GB on the common tables. Of course: they wonder why I call them "incompetent, raving lunatics" at every meeting...
