Sun offering RAC-Ready servers for Oracle

Sun Microsystems has announced that they are offering RAC components within their Solaris framework, in a Solaris component dubbed "Cluster Advanced Edition for Oracle Real Application Clusters":

"Priced at $50 per year per employee, Cluster Advanced Edition for Oracle Real Application Clusters includes Sun StorEdge QFS file system software, Sun Cluster RAC agent and Solaris Volume Manager partitioning.

The product also includes input/output "fencing" to preserve the integrity of data and tighter integration with Solaris 10 to reduce downtime for applications."

One of the issues with a sophisticated tool such as RAC is the inherent complexity ff the filesystem storage sub-system, and this is an effort to improve manageability for Oracle database that require continuous availability:

""We have worked to certify the Sun Cluster for Oracle Database 10g and Oracle Real Application Clusters, so that our joint customers can feel assured of the integrity and high availability delivered by Oracle Real Application Clusters on Solaris 10," said Prem Kumar, vice president of server technologies at Oracle. . .

Sun now distributes the Oracle Database Enterprise Edition with its Solaris operating system, along with one year of support from Oracle, in a licensing deal that makes it essentially free. Sun has also moved its entire company onto Oracle enterprise resource planning software."
