comment Is it technically possible to move a single mysql database from a server to another, with no downtime?
There are some methods for hot copy and software available. Here's a good article on the replication process in production MySQL Live DB Move

comment Server quality labels?
There are a ton of labels you could claim, albeit worthless as others here have referenced. Are you trying to achieve a goal or just create a toolbar like certificate list on the website? Edit your question to include your intention and you'll likely get an answer.

comment Should I use bios “Advanced ECC” in Dell PowerEdge R710 Bios with ECC DIMMs?
@Mxx I suppose it's not exactly guaranteed either way. However, with the Advanced ECC option On you'll be able to recover from more errors without intervention (lower overall probability of a bit error) and performance hit should be low. It's certainly lower attempting to correct at the DBMS. While the DBMS may be able to save your data the end-user experience may still be presented in a software crash and/or rollback of a potentially large operation. I suppose with monitoring if the chip is failing and errors frequency grows, Advanced ECC could give you time to replace the DIMM cleanly.

comment Should I use bios “Advanced ECC” in Dell PowerEdge R710 Bios with ECC DIMMs?
@Mxx I've updated my answer to try to explain. IMHO since you are running an Oracle DB cluster, I'm doubtful you'll have data loss. In the rare event of a failure, the DBMS is built to prevent data loss and other issues. In your case for the cluster, I would enable Advanced ECC as performance should be negligible, but you can test it under load if you have concerns.
