Hi Deanna,

you should have HP MC/SG with OPS to run oracle OPS on hp systems.

Hope this helps.

Re: What is Oracle Parrallel Server

Before you go too far down this road, the main implication that you should consider is that all the oracle datafiles, control files, etc. must not be 'cooked' files; i.e. those that actually reside in a filesystem but rather all access is done via raw devices (raw logical volumes). The raw LVOLS can be shared my multiple hosts. This means you may need to completely rethink your backup methods and database copying methods. I'm not saying that this is bad BUT it is the most important aspect of using OPS.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
