    In order to properly run RAC, you must have a cluster file system as all machines will share the same disk topology. Additionally, you will need a memory interconnect for the machines.  

    RAC pricing has changed somewhat to "encourage" the world to purchase it. Check the web site for exact pricing.

Seems we are getting a killer deal for purchasing RAC with Oracle9i.  

We currently have purchased (2) SunFire 280 (Soalris) that will have a SAN connection to our Xiotech machine.  

My question is do we need to purchase a clustering file system solution to run RAC? ie. Veritas cluster filesystem? If so, what else may need to be purchased?  

Our Xiotech is shared with other applications, will this be a problem if implementing a RAC solution on it?    

Thanks in advance.
