27 Jun 2011 Configuring Oracle Solaris Cluster Software With Oracle RAC/CRS and Sun ZFS Storage Appliance 7000 Systems [24301]
Procedure Applies to Entire Sun 7000 Unified Storage System Line

A blog post on the Oracle TechNetwork by J. Randriam describes the installation procedure for a 3-node Sun Cluster 3.2 01/09 or Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 (or later) configuration running with Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC)/Cluster Ready Services (CRS) and a Sun ZFS Storage 7120 System. Contents of the post include:

  • Initial Preparation on the Sun ZFS Storage 7120 Using the CLI
  • Creating NFS Filesystems Using the Sun ZFS Storage 7120 CLI
  • Accessing the NFS Filesystems From the Cluster Nodes
  • Accessing the iSCSI LUNs From the Cluster Nodes
  • Adding a Quorum Device
  • Configuring Oracle RAC / CRS in the Cluster

The author notes that, while the 7120 was used in this configuration, the procedure should be applicable to the entire Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage series.

Comparative Management Costs Study by the Edison Group

Edison Group is a technology research firm that provides hands-on product testing, in-depth competitive analysis, customized research, and an independent third-party perspective. Edison helps technology vendors better understand their product, their competitors, and their customers in order to meet their challenges and goals.

A sample report from Edison is "Lowering Manageability Costs while Expanding Storage Capacity using Oracle's Unified Storage Systems."

The summary of that report says, "The drumbeat for expanding storage capacity continues for organizations of all sizes, and as a result, there's an increasing need for easy to use management software that will lower these ownership costs. This white paper describes the results of Edison's Comparative Management Cost study on unified storage systems. The results of our testing show overall that a storage administrator can perform a series of day-to-day tasks in 36 percent less time with 38 percent less complexity on the Oracle Sun ZFS Storage Appliance than is required for the NetApp FAS filer."
