What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

what's in /home/oracle/app/oracle/admin/orcl   ?

assuming a pfile directory (among others),  are there any init  files there?  If so, what's in them?

Are you sure that the SID should be ORCL and not orcl?  It seems the name really is the lower case version as you have a spfile with the lower case name and the db_name parameter is set to the lower case version as well.  I would try setting your ORACLE_SID variable to orcl and trying to start again.
