11i v1 (PA-RISC)
11i v2 (PA-RISC & Integrity)
11i v3 (PA-RISC & Integrity)

2.is it possible to use this storage as a shared storage in oracle rac?

Re: msa2000fc

Officially HP-UX is not supported. So if you buy one and are able to present LUNs to HP-UX (assuming the array software/firmware allows you to) I would not recommend it because you would not be able to get support neither from HP nor from oracle. Since the 2000fc does not support HP-UX, there is no way RAC would be supported either. Take a look at

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12991_div/12991_div.html

and scroll down to OS support.

Based on

the 2000 series is OEMed from Dot Hill.

Also the IBM DS3000 series appears to be the same array. Same line of products (SAS/iSCSI/FC) same number of enclosures and same drive module types. The DS3000 does not support HP-UX either.

This is interesting. The Dot Hill 2000 series array supports Solaris SPARC. Maybe HP-UX support will come soon.
