Hello Team,

Is is possible to configure Oracle RAC (with ASM file system) on a virtualized storage i.e. the storage provided by IBM SVC? Just wondering if there are any dependecies / risks of hosting the Oracle ASM file system on a virtualized storage when it comes to migrating the storage from one backend array to another backend array.

Please can you clarify?

Thanks

I don't know of any particular issues related to IBM SVC.

In general though,  ASM on virtualized SAN storage is fine.  Migrating from one SAN platform to another shouldn't be a problem either if you can mount both at least temporarily.  Once you have the virtualized volumes you should be able to move files around just as if they were local physical volumes.
