Real Application Clusters essentially is the
replacement for OPS. RAC environments are functionally
transparent when compared to single instance
environments.

Oracle 7, 8, and 8i let you cluster multiple machines against the same datafiles with Oracle Parallel Server, OPS. This gives you good scalability and high availability. There was a problem with OPS, though. If one instance modified a data block, and that data block was requested by another instance, that dirty data block had to be written to disk first before the second instance could read it. This was known as "disk pinging" and could hamper performance. Oracle 8.1.6 introduced a concept known as Cache Fusion. With Cache Fusion, dirty blocks could be moved along the cluster interconnect to the second instance's buffer cache. Disk pinging was removed from the equation. Before Cache Fusion, the only way to avoid disk pinging was to segragate application.

1/ When the question was up to date in 2002, no one now cares about OPS.
3/ Cache Fusion was introduced in 9i NOT in 8i.
3/ Let the zombie rest in peace.
