Has anyone managed to get a RAC running in an EC2 environment?

It isn't possible to use one EC2 machine for each RAC node because EC2 can't handle the virtual IPs, but I had thought that I could use one EC2 machine to host several Linux VMs using Virtual Box (the same way that I use Virtual Box on a Windows host). But I can't get Virtual Box working on EC2. The only relevant advice I can find on this is comments to the effect that running any virtualization product with a Xen machine as host is not a good idea.

I do realize that this isn't a 100% Oracle question, but if anyone has set up a RAC on an Amazon Cloud machine, I would like to know how.

Hey John,

I did successfully installed oracle on ec2, for the virtual IP part i used a distributed virtual switch from vcider which helped me in getting multiple IP's for oracle rac.
