Hi Tom,

I would say that it depends on the purpose and do you actually need cluster file system ? As we all know since release of Oracle10g, Automatic Storage Management and Cluster Ready Services you don't need third party vendor cluster software anymore, because CRS (Cluster Ready Services) and ASM (Automatic Storage Management) are enough for the purpose. I haven't used HP ServiceGuard CFS and probably I'll never used it because its too expensive, but I'd rather use HP ServiceGuard and HP ServiceGuard extension for RAC. Please take a look at thread "multipath slvm hp-ux 11.23 - asm or raw" from first of February where we discussed similar topic and what are the options for installing RAC on HP-UX (as it seems that your OS is HP-UX?).
