Isilon Leads in Clustered Storage–Without Support for Oracle

One of my favorite blogs,, is covering Isilon and Clustered Storage here. The debate is heating up because there are some folks that think NetApp OnTap GX is clustered storage. I have blogged before about how a clustered namespace is not clustered storage such as:

NetApp’s OnTap GX for Oracle. Clustered Name Space.

And other articles here:

FS, CFS, NFS, ASM Topics

Remember, this is an Oracle blog and Isilon is indeed clustered storage, but they can’t do Oracle. And while OnTap GX can do Oracle, it is not symmetric clustered storage so it won’t scale.
