Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS + Oracle storage hardware suggestions?



You might want to talk to the Software Vendor ( Oracle ) and OS Vendor
( Red Hat ) regarding the best option in terms of hardware. The OS and
application layer GFS will benefit tremendously by using FC HBA
( qlogic/Emulex ) those being the preferred and supported options, the
latter is VERY important should anything goes wrong and you need to ask
for assistance.

Storage MSAxxx are really reliable.

DO NOT USE SCSI/SATA for this very important project of yours. If you
require high availability and maximum uptime for your DB, it does not
make sense to pay big money for the OS/Software and penuts for the
hardware.

REDHAT/ORACLE do not do miracles is you have a flaky hardware layer.
