Red Hat Gets a Jump on Oracle Clustering Support

[From eWeek]

Red Hat announced at the OracleWorld conference that it will make Oracle Cluster File System available to its enterprise customers, leaving UnitedLinux's distribution to play catch-up.

Wim Coekaerts, principal member of Oracle's technical staff and its Linux specialist, acknowledged that the first UnitedLinux distribution will not have Oracle Cluster File System functionality but said Oracle is working with UnitedLinux to develop it.

Oracle Cluster File System, combined with Red Hat Linux Advanced Server, allows customers to manage their database storage in an Oracle9i RAC configuration as easily as on a single system. Oracle Cluster File System supports all database files, archive logs, redo files and control files.
