Solution – Features and Aspects
We provisioned to run the Oracle RAC * using a new feature called stretched clusters for VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware provides VMware Cloud on AWS. On AWS, VMware Cloud is an on-demand service with access to a broad range of AWS services that enable customers to run applications across vSphere-based cloud environments. It is optimized to run on defined elastic, bare-metal AWS infrastructure.
For any (SDDC) Software Defined Data Center cluster, an ESXi hypervisor is installed on and deployed on bare-metal into a (VPC) Virtual Private Cloud within an AWS account owned by VMware. It is designed to protect if the availability zone fails. Applications can have multiple availability zones within a VMware Cloud on AWS cluster.
* This service requires a minimum number of 4 cluster nodes, which can be scaled online via a portal or REST API call
