Oracle Parallel Server (OPS) is a legacy product that is no longer being developed or supported by Oracle. It was a cluster-based version of the Oracle Database that allowed multiple nodes to access a single database concurrently.
It was replaced by Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) which is a more advanced and widely used option for achieving high availability and scalability in Oracle Database environments.
