Has anyone built a oracle 11g or 10g RAC on HP Blade C3000. A typical setup could be 4 X Bl460c blade servers using 4 X SB40c storage blade ( giving 24 X 146 GB SAS drives ). Both the blade servers and storage will fit in the same blade enclosure. OS could be oracle enterprise Linux The advantages would be.
- shared stored on the blade enclosure meaning no need for SAN or NAS.
- shared stored on the blade enclosure meaning no need for HBAs
- no need for private LAN as servers will internally communicate via backplane.
The question is has anyone build this and if so what was the experience?
