Hi RAC gurus..

I need your advice regarding storage options for our RAC development environment.

Since it is a development environment so management is reluctant to invest in SAN , Our production is a 2 node RAC on windows 2003 server mounted on Dell SAN.

We have two spare servers available with Intel Xeon processors and SAS disks on them. SAN is out of question here and since we are on windows we cannot use NAS.

I was reviewing the storage options and came across to Openfiler and Wasabi Storage Builder softwares which can transform your server ( spare ones ) into virtual SANs for shared storage purposes.

I want to know if its reliable, scalable and whether it can be put to production one day or not? Which one is better Openfiler or Wasabi ?
