Cluster Prerequisites Needed


Hi Gurus

Could you someone share the details follow?

1. Prerequisites to configure a TWO node cluster in Linux
2. What are all the licenses required for support? (OS & Cluster)
3. Does Red Hat support clusters configured in Oracle Enterprise Linux Servers?
4. Does GFS is mandatory in cluster environment?

Thanks in advance

The VERY FIRST HIT in Google is from Red Hat's website...did you try to look this up first?

Call Red Hat and Oracle and ask them

3. Does Red Hat support clusters configured in Oracle Enterprise Linux Servers?
Yes...again, call Red Hat and Oracle for details, and check their knowledgebases

4. Does GFS is mandatory in cluster environment?
No.

And since you're a 'Linux specialist', and have Red Hat Certifications...shouldn't you be able to answer such questions easily?

In general, there are two types of clusters that are usually built. The first type is clusters for high performance computing (usually used to run highly parallelized scientific or number crunching software), a subset of which are the large render farms used for digital animation. The second type is high availability or load balancing clusters that attempt to serve massive numbers of transactions in a shot period of time (e.g. web server or database server clusters). Based on your post, it sounds like you're asking about the second type, but you never actually say. I'd agree with TB0ne that you need to do some research with the actual vendors whose software you intend to use.
