    although there is actually no thread for peoplesoft ...

    I 've figured out from the two RAC setups done that the RACs are transparent for the applications and you can use failover capabilities if the login SID is the database SID. One App a Billing system and the other a financials bookkeeping app.

    But keep in mind that defending on the flavour and of your SAN Storage the location of Oracle Datasets is still an issue.
    And depending on the platform (Hardware and OS) there are various pitfalls you can trap into... , esp. X440 series and RH Adv. Server 2.1

    It's true, DB perfomance depends on HW and SW combination.
    It's very important to tune OS before you install DB on it.
    Most of DBAs doesn't understand the OS which DB is running on.
    Use of Oracle recommended OS settings is not enough.
    RedHat AS 2.1 is very good OS but you need to know how to tune it for DB purposes especially for RAC. If you don't know how then try contact your sysadmin.

    Try upgrade to Solaris 9. You get approx 15% better performance.
    Don't worry about 8 to 9 migration. They are 100% binary compatible.
