Oracle RAC is an Oracle database application which runs multiple db instances against one database simultaneously utilising CPU power on multiple machines.

Veritas Storage Foundation for RAC has a lot of features in it to improve application (RAC) manageability, resource monitoring and control, load balance over inter-node network connections and high availability for NICs used for private network, IO fencing, dmp multipathing and IO load balance, file system snapshot,  cluster file systems, db/web application HA etc.

So my reconnendation is whenever possible, install both Oracele RAC and Storage Foundation for RAC.with sufficient memory and high performance sub-disk systems etc.

Technically Oracle RAC is a must for database application and Storage Foundation for RAC is recommended.

Regards,

Hello,

Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC is a Veritas solution for Oracle RAC applications. It provides many RAC related resource monitoring and control (example, cssd, PrvNIC, IO fencing, CFS, load balance between private network links etc).  Oracle RAC is an Oracle solution which uses ClusreWare and SAM for instance and storage management

SFCFSHA is a cluster file system with high availability for applications.where CFS is active active.
