Volume 112, Issue 2
Sun Cluster enhances the value proposition for the Sun Blade 6000
Modular System and the Sun Blade T6300 Server Module by adding the
manageability and availability attributes of Sun Cluster to Sun
Blade 6000 Modular System and the Sun Blade T6300 Serve
Versions 3.1 (8/05) and 3.2 and later of this high-availability cluster software supports both of these Sun Blade systems, allowing them to be deployed in a Sun Cluster environment. With Sun Cluster, also known as SolarisTM Cluster, key reliability features of the Solaris 10 OS are supported, improving the availability of databases, file sharing services, websites or other applications running on the Solaris OS.
Supported configurations include:
Solaris 10 OS 11/06 and later
Storage: Sun StorageTekTM (ST) 2540, ST2501, ST3510, ST3511, ST6120, ST6130, ST6140, ST6540, ST6920 systems
Public Network Interconnect: X7282A-Z, X7283A-Z, X4250A (onboard network)
Fibre Channel Switches: There are no Solaris Cluster restrictions to using Fibre Channel switches with the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System.
Licensing of Sun Cluster allows for:
One server entitlement per physical system in the cluster. If a system has multiple domains, with some or all domains participating in the same or different clusters, only one server RTU license is needed for that system.
One agent entitlement per agent for the entire cluster.
One Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) cluster functionality (aka CVM) license per Oracle Parallel Server/RAC node if VxVM cluster functionality is being used for shared volumes. A node is a Solaris image, meaning it is the same as a domain or a server, if there is no domaining included.
