Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 (SE2) no longer includes Real Application Clusters (RAC) 19c
How does this affect existing users?
- The change applies from 19c (19.1/Release 18) onwards. If you have, and want to remain on a release prior to this, you can still use RAC as part of your original license entitlement at the date your End User Agreement was signed.
- If you wish to upgrade to the latest release, you need to follow steps to upgrade your database to Enterprise Edition (EE) and purchase (or migrate to) the corresponding EE and RAC licenses.
- Alternatively, you can downscale your High Availability deployment to eliminate RAC usage.
- Another option would be to consider a migration to the Cloud if that is a possibility for your organisation
