  4. Agenda • Overview • Deployment • High Availability • Consolidation

    4 • Demo
  5. RAC One Node • New option to the Oracle Database

    11.2 EE. • Unlike the Oracle RAC feature, RON is not available with SE. • The only new database addition with this release. • Introduced first with 11.2.0.1 • Apply 9004119 to get the text based utilities. 5 • Apply 9004119 to get the text based utilities. • RAC One -- Changes in 11.2.0.2 [ID 1232802.1] • OUI and DBCA aware from 11.2.0.2. • Oracle RAC One Node is a single instance of an Oracle RAC enabled database.
  6. RAC One Node • RAC One Node is an option

    of Oracle 11.2 EE. • $10,000 per processor. • Eligible for upgrade to full RAC. • All nodes on which RAC One Node is installed must be licensed for RAC One Node 6 be licensed for RAC One Node • RAC One node is eligible for 10-day rule in a calendar year. • Oracle RAC One Node can be online upgraded to full Oracle RAC (license!). • Supported on all platforms on which Oracle RAC is certified! • No additional certifications for RON.
  7. The “Always on” single instance database • Solution to reduce

    planned downtime. • Online database relocation. • Online storage and server replacement. • Online OS and DB patching. 7 • Solution to reduce unplanned downtime. • Database Cold Failover. • Better storage and server resource utilization. • Instance caging and ASM.
  8. Agenda • Overview • Deployment • High Availability • Consolidation

    8 • Demo
  9. Create RAC One Node 11.2.0.2 database • Install and configure

    11.2.0.2 GI on all nodes. • Install 11.2.0.2 DB software by selecting RAC One in all nodes. • Create a RAC One Node database using DBCA. 9 • Create service – setup TAF or FAN correctly.

  14. High availability • Oracle RAC One Node targets the failover

    market • But differs from other cold failover solutions. • Install rolling patches (no downtime). • Easy and online scale-out to multi-node RAC. 14 • RAC includes RAC One Node features. • OMotion - online migration of a database.
  15. High availability • RAC One Node Support in Grid Control

    11.1 [ID 1308490.1]. • Oracle RAC One Node is supported with Oracle Data Guard 11.2.0.2 • Dataguard Broker is RAC One aware. 15 • Dataguard Broker is RAC One aware. • Oracle RAC One Node is supported with Oracle Goldengate [1320094.1].

    36 • Demo
  37. Better consolidation • GI and ASM are running all the

    time on all nodes • Storage capacity is shared. • Disk groups are mounted all the time on all nodes • No volume migration during relocation or failover. • Instance caging 37 • Instance caging • Better workload and resource utilization. • Dynamic parameter (CPU_COUNT). • Two approaches - over-provisioning and partitioning. • RON can be admin or policy managed database

  41. Conclusion • Oracle RAC One Node pros: • Single vendor

    solution. • Faster Failover of database. • Easy and online scale-out to multi-node RAC. • Tolerate planned and unplanned outages. 41 • Tolerate planned and unplanned outages. • Lower license cost than full RAC. • Oracle RAC One Node cons: • Several MOS notes and no docs! • Not available to SE. • Almost ½ from RAC price.
