What is an ODA?

Oracle Database Appliance

The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is an engineered system that includes hardware, software, storage, and networking all organized in an appliance developed by Oracle. If your’e familiar with Oracle Technologies, then the best way to look at the ODA is by thinking of it as a two node Oracle Linux RAC cluster in a single box, with shared storage and networking all included.
