Is parallel server necessary to run second instance of database?

I stared my very first instance as well as my database by using the STARTUP command. If I want to start the second instance in the same machine, is it necessary to have a parallel server configured with my database? If so, how do I configure it?

You do not need Oracle Parallel Server to run more than one instance on a machine. OPS is for running multiple instances connected to the same database. You want to run multiple instances connected to their own database. You do not need special software for this.

To create a second instance on your machine, just fire up the Database Configuration Assistant and select the option to create a new database. The wizard will guide you through the process.
