FAQ
Happy new year everyone,

I have tried to do a bit of googling against both the Amazon support
forum and general Internet but I do not find anything helpful perhaps
because of the the different way private public network can be
interpreted.

I am curious if there is anyone here who has attempted setting up a
RAC on amazon cloud. How would one go about fulfilling the RAC
requirement of having a separate public / private network? Would
virtual interface be of any use between instances given the limitation
that instances do have only one interface? Any guidance would be
appreciated

Thanks in advance

William

    Amazon EC2 currently does not provide the clustering infrastructure
    required to run RAC.
    Have a look at the link below:

    I did some playing around with this early last year. My first approach
    was using a 3rd party tool to add the needed network infrastructure.
    Didn't get all the way there, but I did get quite far. Might work now
    if you try with some later 11gR2 releases... I know there have been
    enhancements to the interconnect code and I might have been getting
    stuck there.

    Another possible approach would be using either linux containers or
    user-mode linux to virtualize within a single EC2 instance. This is
    what I want to try next, but I haven't had time to work on it yet.
    Hoping to have some time when I'm back home from Africa in May. :)
