Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 and Oracle Solaris 11 Software Supported on Third Party Storage


Oracle Solaris Cluster software can be used with different storage
technologies such as FC, SCSI, iSCSI and NAS on Oracle storage and
third party storage. There is also support for highly available
Oracle Solaris ZFS, POSIX compliant cluster file system, raw disk
access to cluster-wide global devices and volume managers. Oracle
Solaris Cluster software provides the highest levels of data
integrity and availability using innovative fencing and quorum
technologies.  Oracle Solaris Cluster software has a validation tool
called OSCATE (Oracle Solaris Cluster Automated Test Environment)
that is used to verify that the storage under test meets all the
requirements for successful integration with the Oracle Solaris
Cluster product. It has a combination of functional, load tests and
real world fault injection scenarios to ensure end-to-end
availability of the entire stack all the way from applications to
storage.


Third party storage partners are diligently working towards becoming
certified with Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 and Oracle Solaris 11
software.  Partners now certified are EMC, Hitachi Data Systems,
HP/3PAR, IBM and NEC.  Certification is essential prior to
deployment in a production environment.  Completing the stringent
set of test requirements dictated by OSCATE provides customers with
choices of supported third-party storage arrays and confidence that
should any issue arise, they will be supported by both parties.


Support for the Oracle Solaris ZFS file system with EMC SRDF, a
storage-based replication option, is also now available for use with
Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition. The following
configurations are supported on Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 with EMC
SRDF:


Geographic Edition

Geographic Edition + ZFS

Geographic Edition + campus cluster

Geographic Edition + campus cluster + ZFS


For all Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.x configurations where TimeFinder
or SRDF are being used, please refer to the white paper,
“Integration of EMC SRDF and TimeFinder with Oracle Solaris Cluster”
on EMC’s  PowerLink site.  You may also refer to the Oracle Solaris
Cluster 3.3 5/11 documentation:

Campus Cluster Data Replication:    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18728_01/html/821-2847/datarep.html#scrolltoc

Geographic Edition:    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E22702_01/html/821-2756/index.html

storage becomes certified, you will find support information
