  New! Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 / RHEL4 U5 / iSCSI — (15-February-2007)

This newly updated article builds on previous guides on how to build an 
inexpensive Oracle RAC 10g using commodity hardware. This most recent guide 
provides detailed instructions on how to build a two node Oracle RAC 10g R2 
using iSCSI (powered by Openfiler) for the shared storage device.

Powered by rPath Linux, Openfiler is a free browser-based network storage 
management utility that delivers file-based Network Attached Storage (NAS) and 
block-based Storage Area Networking (SAN) in a single framework. Openfiler 
supports CIFS, NFS, HTTP/DAV, FTP, however, I will only be making use of its 
iSCSI capabilities to implement an inexpensive SAN for the shared storage 
component required by Oracle RAC 10g.
