One of the suppositions of successfully acting companies is the permanent availability of data which constitute the basic of all courses of business. These data have to be installed central so that access for applications is possible from all quarters independent of as well as operating system and hardware. With its relational database system Oracle™ has developed for that an efficient platform for integrated solutions based on most modern technologies. Oracle databases are characterized by less expenditure of administration and low costs. Cross-branches and for companies almost every size Oracle databases are counted among most common databases.

With the failover cluster solution LifeKeeper® for Linux, the availability of Oracle databases will be increased.
