    provides e-business applications the benefits of both
    shared disk and shared nothing databases without the
    drawbacks of either architecture. It does so by
    exploiting rapidly emerging disk storage and

    architecture is revolutionary in an industry sense, it is
    a natural evolution of the Oracle Parallel Server
    architecture found in Oracle 8i. Oracle Real Application
    Clusters with its Cache Fusion architecture provides
    the following key benefits to enterprise application
    deployments.

    A higher availability solution than traditional cluster
    database architectures. this architecture provides
    customers near continuous access to data with
    minimal interruption by hardware and software
    component failures. The system is resilient to multiple
    node failures and component failures are masked from
    end-users.

    A single management entity; a single system image is
    preserved across the cluster for all management
    operations. DBAs perform installation, configuration,
    backup, upgrade, and monitoring functions once. Oracle
    then automatically distributes the management
    functions to the appropriate nodes. This means the DBA
    manages one virtual server.

    Flexible and effortless scalability for applications.
    Application users can log onto a single virtual high
