Hi,

Yes, you will need to obtain special hardware:

1. A cluster interconnect (a normal network cable might work under lab conditions, but will be too slow for a production environment).

2. A Shared Storage Subsystem. Remember, RAC (or OPS) is one shared database. Instances from multiple machines will mount and access this single database.

Best regards.

Frank
