What platform is your hardware/OS?

Stay away from Veritas Clusters... it will add a level of complexity you really do not want.

Are you also using ASM?

I would not use NAS, use SAN. All of the ones you mentioned it support multiple systems connecting to same devices via SCSI-3 bit...

[successfully using NetApp (tier2 storage) on a 2-node (soon to be 3) SUN RAC cluster with more than 370TB of storage]

However, my [PERM] Salary Continuation plan will be discontinued in another week or so. So, if you are looking for a consultant to come in and help with your situation... email address is real. Received on Mon Mar 16 2009 - 18:27:09 CDT
