Failover – In this type of recovery, nodes are configured in
"cluster;" the first
installed node acts as a primary node. If the primary node fails, one of the
nodes in the cluster acts as the primary node. In this type of environment,
Oracle permits licensed Oracle Database customers to run the Database on
an unlicensed spare computer for up to a total of ten separate days in any
given calendar year. Any other use requires the environment to be fully
licensed. Same rule applies for Internet Application Server. Additionally, the
same metric must be used when licensing the databases in a failover
environment. See illustration #4.
