The term cluster can refer to either:

  • An Oracle object that allows one to store related rows from different tables in the same data block. Table clustering is very seldomly used by Oracle DBA's and Developers.
  • Two or more computers that share resources and work together to form a larger logical computing unit. RAC and Oracle Parallel Server can be used to access Oracle from multiple nodes of a clustered system.
