    Shared LUNs for RAC : VirtualBox or Openfiler ?

    spiral
      I am going to install a 2-node 11.2.0.3 Grid Infrastructure and DB on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.3

      Host OS : Windows 7 (RAM 16GB )
      Guest OS : OEL 6.3
      Hypervisor : VirtualBox 4.2.6



      Its been more than an year since Virtual box has introduced Shared LUN creation feauture.

      To configure shared LUNs, would you use Openfiler or VirtualBox's Shared LUN creation feauture ?


      I know Openfiler needs a dedicated VM to be created. But I have enough RAM in my PC (16GB).
