You have your brand new RAC deployed on a cluster and you want to manage your backups through a recovery catalog.
Suppose you don’t have a dedicate server to host your catalog, perhaps you wouldn’t configure your catalog as a RAC database: so why don’t you use Clusterware to configure your catalog as a single instance in cold failover?
OTN has a very nice whitepaper describing how to protect a single instance database. This can be nicely applied on 10g, 10gR2 or 11g: Using Oracle Clusterware to Protect A Single Instance Oracle Database 11g.
Clusterware is appealing also for traditional cold failover clusters. Licensing allows you to use Clusterware as far as you protect Oracle software or 3rd party software that use Oracle as database backend.
