How can we escape our scalability rut?

Can you help us get out of a rut? About four years ago, we started running Windows NT on 10 Pentium Pro 4-way servers. We outgrew that quickly. We upgraded to a 4-way Xeon servers. A little over a year later, we outgrew that. Then, we got eight-processor Intel SMP servers running Oracle8i on Windows and Veritas Cluster Server. This approach has been costly and is a bear and time-intensive for administration. What's a less-costly, easier to administer scaleable option?

My suggestion is to deploy Oracle 9i RAC and you will see an easier way to scale by adding processors to your cluster. RAC will help you scale and administer from a single point of view.
