I was talking with someone the other day about Oracle Parallel Server (OPS) and Real Application Clusters. I got to thinking about what percentage of RAC deployments have been done by folks that had prior OPS experience. I wondered if the number was really small?
I remember during the summer of 2000 I was working on the Oracle Disk Manager library at Veritas using a pre-release version of Oracle called Oracle 8.2. That was the code that became the Oracle9i product. The clustered database in Oracle 8.2 was still being called Oracle Parallel Server since that was before the name Real Application Clusters hit the street. Oh well, that is just a little walk down memory lane.
No, not Anjo Kolk’s YAPP, but Yet Another Poll. Yes, if you can bear it, please visit my poll called “RAC Archeology.” And, yes it is yet another poll about RAC, but I’d like to dial in on a couple of aspects of storage as you can tell by the wording of the questions. Maybe the same 150 folks that participated in Jared Still’s poll (as I discussed in Manly Man Part IV) will be kind enough to stop by this one.
Folks, if you use RAC, please take a second to participate in the RAC Archeology poll. Thanks.
