Since I’m on site at a Beta customer (testing the product I work on at Oracle), this will be a quick blog entry. I’ve been meaning to direct folks to Gear6 for quite some time now. I have no stake in Gear6, so this is not a shameless plug. I think they solve interesting problems so if you are a large NFS shop, I’d recommend checking them out. They offer a plug-in NFS read-through cache and while I haven’t had first hand experience with their product, I know folks that have and they had good things to say about Gear6.
If any of you are confused about what NFS has to do with Oracle, I recommend this list of Oracle on NFS related posts.
