This paper provides an overview of key technologies used in Oracle grid and virtualization, including Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) and Oracle Virtual Machine. Through typical deployment scenarios, it describes how NetApp business continuity solutions - MetroCluster and SnapMirror - provide continuous availability and disaster recovery capabilities to these environments. Oracle RAC and OVM are key components in the Oracle virtualized grid architecture. Within a data center or across two sites in a campus or metropolitan area, NetApp MetroCluster can provide continuous availability of RAC and OVM data through its unique combination of array-based clustering with synchronous mirroring to enable zero data loss, and providing the data at both the primary and target is both consistent and current.
