    I'm trying to see if there is a SQL Server counterpart to Oracle's RAC configuration but couldn't find any.
    Oracle's RAC basically have multiple sets of memory structures (located on different servers) accessing the same set of disks. Data modifications are synchronize between the many sets of memory structures.
    SQL Server clustering is NOT Oracle RAC. Clustering is single set of memory structures that fails over to a different server when necessary.
    Does SQL Server have a counterpart to Oracle RAC????
    Thanks,

    As far I know there is no such thing in SQL.
    Wait for others members opinions.

    Thanks Luis and Madhu.
    I didn't think there was any SQL Server counterpart to Oracle RAC.
    Does anyone know if SQL Server 2008 has any new features that might be similar to Oracle RAC.
