Software Required for Oracle9i RAC

by Jeff Hunter, Sr. Database Administrator

A popular question: "What software is necessary for Oracle9i RAC?" - "Does it have a separate installation CD to order?"

Real Application Clusters is contained within the Oracle9i Enterprise Edition. If you install Oracle9i Enterprise Edition onto a cluster, and the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) recognizes the cluster, you will be provided the option of installing RAC. Most UNIX platforms require an OSD installation for the necessary clusterware. For Intel platforms (Linux and Windows), Oracle provides the OSD software within the Oracle9i Enterprise Edition release.
