Right now I've got some 3.5 Veritas Clusters running Oracle8
that are due for an upgrade.
I'm playing around with the idea of getting rid of all of
our Veritas software and replacing it with Sun software
(since cluster is now free).
So it would be:
Solaris 10 (01/06 HW release, latest patches)
Sun Volume Manager
Sun Cluster 3.1
I've used Veritas for so long now & am weary of mixing it in
with Sun Cluster. Ideally - I'd like to just go with one vendor
for my clustering.
Is MPXIO comparable to DMP? Are people actually running Sun volume
manager under production Oracle DB's? I've used SVM for mirroring
boot drives on web servers and app servers but never in the database
I've read that QFS can do the volume management all on it's own -
is that what people are typically using with Sun Clusters?
I'm reading the FAQs and white papers right now but would love to
hear from some people with real world experience with the stuff.
