Best Oracle RAC architecture for DL585 servers

Greetings,

We are planning to make a RAC installation of the database used by on of our applications.

The target installation will be 2 HP Proliant DL585 servers with 4 AMD Opteron and 4 GB RAM CPUs.

I am now trying to define the best architecture for this HW configuration.

With this HW I have a few options and therefore some interesting questions can be raised:

1. Which OS:

Server 2003 X86, Linux X86 or Linux AMD64?

2. Which Oracle version?

Oracle: 9.2 or 10gR2?

3. Which Host backup software?

Veritas Backup for windows, ??? for Linux

The final architecture shall be fully supplied and of course the most competitive in terms of performance and price.

Any suggestion or recommendation is highly appreciated.

TIA.

Kind Regards,

Rui.

Hi Rui,

1. I think Linux performance is better than Windows, especially for databases.

2.Whatever, up to you

3. NetBackup Server , It's competent.

Re: Best Oracle RAC architecture for DL585 servers

hi,
1.I suggest you use Linux ,as you use AMD64 hardware,you'd better use linux 64.
2.I suggest you use 10g R2 ,In any case,9i will go out of season first.
