This is all true - for what it's worth, the closest you'll come to cheap
is low-end iSCSI storage from Dell/Equalogic or Dell/EMC or perhaps one
of the really low-end NetApps, or look at HP/LeftHand Networks.  Don't
waste your money on a SAN.

RAC and CHEAP create a great collision!

If you use RAC either for HA or for scaling, you are in regions where
CHEAP will not fit.

So why not save the (little) money for a non-RAC, but rock solid


What's your goal behind the idea?


(I don't want to offend you, I just have to fight the 'cheak' ideas of
my management too often)

        I am planning a cheap RAC solution based on Red hat Enterprise 4
Linux (or oracle unbreakable Linux) .
        I get some hints from Jeff Hunter's storage solution, but i am
not sure if it a stable one, and also the performance?
        Do anyone else implement such kind of "cheap" RAC setup with a
very nice storage solution?
        What is your concern while you choose it ?
