This is all true - for what it's worth, the closest you'll come to cheap is low-end iSCSI storage from Dell/Equalogic or Dell/EMC or perhaps one of the really low-end NetApps, or look at HP/LeftHand Networks. Don't waste your money on a SAN.

RAC and CHEAP create a great collision!
If you use RAC either for HA or for scaling, you are in regions where CHEAP will not fit.
So why not save the (little) money for a non-RAC, but rock solid solution?
What's your goal behind the idea?
(I don't want to offend you, I just have to fight the 'cheak' ideas of my management too often)
Martin Berger http://berx.at/ I am planning a cheap RAC solution based on Red hat Enterprise 4Linux (or oracle unbreakable Linux) .
I get some hints from Jeff Hunter's storage solution, but i am not sure if it a stable one, and also the performance?
Do anyone else implement such kind of "cheap" RAC setup with a very nice storage solution?
What is your concern while you choose it ?
