Solaris 10 What's New

Multi-Owner Disk Set Support With Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster

This feature is new in the Solaris Express 10/04 release and in the Solaris 9 9/04 release.

Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster introduces volume management features that work specifically with Sun Cluster and with applications such as Oracle Real Application Clusters. Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster enables you to create and manage storage that is grouped into multi-owner disk sets. A multi-owner disk set enables multiple nodes to share ownership of a disk set. Multi-owner disk sets provide scalability because an instance of the application runs on each node in the cluster. Because each instance of the application directly accesses the shared storage, multi-owner disk sets also enhance the performance of the application.

For more information, see the Solaris Volume Manager Administration Guide. For information about Sun Cluster, see Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS and Sun Cluster Data Service for Oracle Real Application Clusters Guide for Solaris OS.
