RedHat Linux , HP SAN & Oracle-Do we still need Veritas Volume Manager?
Posted on 2007-12-04
We are in the process of data migration where we have standardised on the following systems:
1- HP EVA4100 SAN
2- Xeon-based HP servers
3- RedHat Enterprise Linux
4- Oracle database
Now as far as SAN volume management is concerned , do we still need a third party software like Veritas Storage Foundation?
In addition and to provide clustering software for the Oracle database , do we still need Veritas Cluster Server to do that?
In other words , can't we simply have the above two functionalities provided out of the box with the HP SAN and Linux?
