    - Use the CREATE CLUSTER statement to create a cluster.

    - A cluster is a schema object that contains data from one or more tables, all of which have one or more columns in common.

    - Oracle Database stores together all the rows from all the tables that share the same cluster key.

    - Oracle Database does not automatically create an index for a cluster when the cluster is initially created.

    - Data manipulation language (DML) statements cannot be issued against cluster tables in an indexed cluster until you create a cluster index with a CREATE INDEX statement.
