What technology are you using? This should work fine, I used to work with AIX HACMP clusters, but you will have downtime during the failover, in my case this was between 5 and 10 minutes, so your business must allow this. Make sure to use the virtual hostnames in your oracle net configuration, and also make sure that applications who connect to your cluster use a hostname which is resolved to a virtual IP...
