Hello everyone, i am new to this community and a entry level Linux user, i have some old servers performing different tasks (crypto currency pool, website, etc) i am running every application on a different server, and when a single server goes down, that application goes down, and would like to reconfigure everything into an oracle RAC, i have been reading and looking some tutorials in YouTube but there is a lot of information, basically i have 3 HP proliant DL380 G7 servers witch i was planning to use, i was thinking to use 1 server as a database or NAS, and then the other 2 as nodes, so here are some questions, is it a good idea to use a server as a NAS for the database? then with the other 2 servers i was thinking on virtualization of new machines to perform the same task they servers were doing but having the redundancy of the RAC, is this a good idea? or i should just keep things simple... i see there are a lot of unused resources and was thinking to add everything up and then virtualize servers when i need them and besides the redundancy i could have more virtual servers for each individual project, any comments are welcome, Happy new year!!
You can create RAC on two VM Server.

With respect to NAS you can use it to store oracle database file
