Real Application Cluster (RAC) is a method to design a network that is used in large scale database which can handle full service all year round. RAC allows the pooling Server nodes in parallel and improve the Performance of each Server to be faster. RAC runs in multiple-computers. RAC was implemented with the support of Storage Area Network. Storage Area Network (SAN) is a high-speed dedicated network consisting of Servers and Storage. In general, SAN is connected via Fibre Channel (FC), UTP cable was used in implementation. Storage Area Network (SAN) was applied in clustering blocks device for high availability. Each block device will backup each other. SAN primary goal is to handle the density of large amounts of data between servers and storage without reducing the bandwidth available on the LAN/WAN. The integration uses three computers (hardware), DRBD package and Management Console (MC). Based on the results obtained by testing the availability is 100%. While the Clustering Performance obtained is 100% (The SAN's Performance 93.396%, The Main and Cluster Server Performance 29.4945%).
