Oracle provides three options
One for OCFS/OCFS2 which is a FILE SYSTEM
Second One IS RAW .you can create at OS Level
Third one is third party Cluster
How we set up network
Two NIC must for Rac
One is Public
another one is Private
Three IP must for rac
First One is public for client access
another one is VIP .VIP and client access must be same subnet mask
third one is Private interconnect.
