SF Oracle RAC hardware requirements
Table: Hardware requirements for basic clusters lists the hardware requirements for basic clusters.
Table: Hardware requirements for basic clusters
A DVD drive on one of the nodes in the cluster.
All shared storage disks support SCSI-3 Persistent Reservations (PR).
The coordinator disk does not store data, so configure the disk as the smallest possible LUN on a disk array to avoid wasting space. The minimum size required for a coordinator disk is 128 MB.
Each system requires at least 2 GB.
For SF Oracle RAC: See the Oracle Metalink document: 169706.1
Two or more private links and one public link.
Links must be 100BaseT or gigabit Ethernet directly linking each node to the other node to form a private network that handles direct inter-system communication. These links must be of the same type; you cannot mix 100BaseT and gigabit.
Veritas recommends gigabit Ethernet using enterprise-class switches for the private links.
Oracle RAC requires that all nodes use the IP addresses from the same subnet.
You can also configure aggregated interfaces.
Fiber Channel or SCSI host bus adapters
At least one additional SCSI or Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter per system for shared data disks.
