Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) Support on VMware Clouds

 

As of December 9th, 2020, VMware recommends that anyone currently running OR planning to run, an Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) in a VMware Cloud environment, reach out to Oracle Corporation for any Oracle support related matters with RAC on our cloud platform.
