Choosing the Cluster Database Management Type

When creating an Oracle RAC database, you can choose one of two types of databases to create.

  • A policy-managed database: The database instances are automatically managed based on server pools for effective resource utilization.

  • An administrator-managed database: The database instances are tied to specific servers in the cluster.
