Oracle has new Templates for RAC


Oracle VM Templates
Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) 11g  Release 2 (x86 32-bit & 64-bit)
With Oracle 11gR2 RAC templates you can now create a RAC cluster in less then an hour!







Also now you can have live migrations with RAC.
  
Oracle RAC is an option to the award-winning Oracle Database Enterprise Edition. Oracle RAC is a cluster database with a shared cache architecture that overcomes the limitations of traditional shared-nothing and shared-disk approaches to provide highly scalable and available database solutions for all your business applications. Oracle RAC is a key component of the Oracle Enterprise grid architecture.
The templates provide an easy and fast way of deploying an Oracle RAC cluster in Oracle VM for test as well as production environments. The templates are designed to build clusters of any number of nodes, while by default a 2-node cluster is created. The templates are available in the following versions:
1. Oracle RAC 11g Release 2, including Oracle Grid Infrastructure Bundle Patch #2 and Oracle Database Patch Set Update #2 (11.2.0.1.2), available via Oracle Oracle Software Delivery Cloud
2. Oracle RAC 11g Release 2, including Oracle Grid Infrastructure Bundle Patch #2 and Oracle Database Patch Set Update #4 (11.2.0.1.4), available via Oracle Oracle Software Delivery Cloud
3. Oracle RAC 11g Release 2, including Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set one (11.2.0.2.0), available from My Oracle Support under Patch number 10113572 for 32-Bit & 64-Bit Linux
4. Oracle RAC 11g Release 2, including Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set one Update #2 (11.2.0.2.2), available from My Oracle Support under Patch number 11836831 for 32-Bit & 64-Bit Linux
5. Oracle RAC 11g Release 2, including Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set two (11.2.0.3.0), available from My Oracle Support under Patch number 12694014 for 32-Bit & 64-Bit Linux

For more information about the latest Oracle Grid Infrastructure and Oracle VM templates for Oracle RAC refer to My Oracle Support note ID 1185244.1
The entire installation is automated, requesting minimal information (e.g. node names, IP addresses, etc.) from the user when guests are booted. Fully automated builds directly from Dom0 are also possible, including automated network setup for all VMs. The final cluster configuration adheres to the best practices for production systems (assuming the production implementation was chosen) as described in the "Oracle Real Application Clusters in Oracle VM environments" technical white paper.
 
Template Highlights
         The Oracle VM templates use a minimal installation of Oracle Linux 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 or 5.7 system images for either 32-bit or 64-bit. Only basic RPM packages are installed.
         The Oracle VM templates can be used to build clusters of any number of nodes using Oracle Database 11g Release 2, which includes Oracle 11g Rel. 2 Clusterware, Oracle 11g Rel. 2 Database, and Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) 11g Rel. 2, patched to the latest, recommended patches.
         The environment comes loaded with Swingbench, Oracle Cluster Health Monitor, OS Watcher, and more tools.
         During the installation process an Oracle RAC database instance is created on all nodes by default.
         Any number of nodes or instances can be added or removed from the cluster using a single command.
