Oracle administration and Performance - Linux Cluster vs Windows Cluster

P: n/a
Helpful associates,

We are going to acquire and new database server that is intel
based and we want to have some failover capabilities. Our question
now is should we go with Linux based cluster solution or Windows
based? We have systems people who are supporting a Linux database
server with Oracle RAC. Due to RAC's expense and the fact that we
really do not need load balancing with our new database server, we are
looking at using a Linux cluster and do have experience with Linux
both at the systems level and database level. However we do not have
any experience with clustering in the Linux environment.
We also have systems people that have experience and are supporting
several windows clusters using SQLServer.

If anyone has experience in both environments and would like to
shed some light on advantages/disadvantages of them it would be most
appreciated. Thanks in advance for your insights!!
