This article provides details on how to build Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The configuration used here is just one of many ways to deploy RAC.
The following tutorial relies on the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). You can run the AWS CLI on your desktop, such as a PC, Mac or Linux machine. To find our more about the AWS CLI, visit aws.amazon.com/cli. Although all steps accomplished with the CLI can be accomplished using the AWS Console, the instructions are limited to the CLI for reasons of clarity and space. In command line examples, commands that you issue are in bold, values you must substitute are in red, and values that you should note for later use are underlined.
