Oracle Fail Safe 4.1.1 is now released. It will be included in future Oracle Database 12c media packs. Customers can download the kit and documentation from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) now by starting at the main Fail Safe page.
The main changes in this release are:
- Basic multi-tenant (container database, or CDB) support
This release of Oracle Fail Safe adds support for the container database feature that was introduced in Oracle Database 12c. Fail Safe will recognize that a database is a root container and will start and stop individual pluggable databases owned by the container database. When a database is failed over or moved to another node in the cluster, Oracle Fail Safe will start each pluggable database using the state that was saved by the last SQL ALTER PLUGGABLE DATABASE ALL SAVE STATE command. Oracle database 12c patch set 1 (126.96.36.199) is required to have the ability to save the state of the pluggable databases.
- Improved net (TNS) configuration
- Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) support
