Oracle InfiniBand

Information technology managers are struggling to balance the need for application performance, scalability, and availability with the reality of flat or shrinking budgets. To address this challenge, more and more of them are turning to open operating systems, standard high volume low-cost computing hardware, and clustering technologies.

These technologies make it easier to implement clustered database solutions like Oracle9i Real Application Clusters. Oracle9i Real Application Clusters enables IT managers to create robust, scalable, and highly available databases running on low cost Intel based servers using the Linux operating system. By leveraging low-cost hardware, Oracle9i Real Application Clusters also significantly improves return on investment and reduces total cost of ownership.

And now, with a new class of interconnect standard called InfiniBand, Oracle9i Real Application Clusters builds upon these economic benefits with a dramatic performance and scalability boost that puts it in a class previously reserved for mainframe hardware.
