RE: Cluster file systems versus raw devices in Oracle RAC

what does "NFS of CFS" mean?  Exporting a CFS? Yeah, that's
being done. It's called the StorageWorks Enterprise File Server Clustered 
Gateway
by HP. Up to 16 nodes of scalable NFS with transparent NFS client failover in 
the
event a NAS head should fail. And when I say transparent, I mean it. Oracle
CRS, and database processes have no idea that the NAS head serviing up their
files has died.  Not exactly the typical filer experience. Yeah, I know you can 
"cluster"
and replicate filers. The HP EFS/CG requires no replication for this high 
availability/
scalability. Want to know how I know ?

        i know some companies that have RAC in site license. but let's change 
the discussion to something else.
         
        NFS of CFS?

                                Kevin is right, as much as I've seen none of 
the site licenses have had RAC 
                                included, most of my customers have even had to 
pay for partitioning extra 
                                (although discounted) price.
