Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) is an ideal  tool if you require high performance, have lots of money and don’t mind complexity.  However, if you are using RAC for high availability, there is another solution that provide almost the same failover performance at a fraction of the cost.  Read this blog from Storage Switzerland to find out more.

Linux continues to become a mainstream solution, often at the expense of Unix. Many of the implementations of Linux have come in organizations that are classic Unix shops. The success of Linux in these organizations has come from both replacing some or all of the existing Unix servers, and equally importantly, capturing growth opportunities for installed systems.  Migrations of applications that were once running on a Unix platform are happening more frequently as organizations look to reduce costs.

While a move to Linux helps reduce server and software costs, other challenges are introduced into this environment. Linux’s native operating system tools are not ready to handle many mission critical tasks.  In order to perform many complex storage management and high availability tasks, applications must be taken down.  Migrations to Linux from Unix are difficult as well and may require long periods of down time.

Symantec offers a wide range of...
