By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Oracle Technology Network]

One of the most efficient ways to become familiar with Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) 11g technology is to have access to an actual Oracle RAC 11g cluster.

Unfortunately, for many shops, the price of the hardware required for a typical production RAC configuration makes this goal impossible. A small two-node cluster can cost from US$10,000 to well over US$20,000.
