OCFS2 released

While it remains one of the top providers of proprietary database and applications software in the world, Oracle this week made several moves to demonstrate that it is a major player in the Linux and open-source market.

The company announced at LinuxWorld that it was releasing OCFS 2 (the Oracle Cluster File System Release 2) as an open-source component that will become a standard component of Novell Inc.'s SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.

Oracle Cluster File System Release 2 (OCFS2) is the next
generation of the popular OCFS (Release 1). This enterprise-class
open-source cluster file system provides customers with a free,
general-purpose file system that can be used for shared Oracle home
installations making management of RAC installations even easier.

SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9: OCFS2 is bundled with the SLES9 SP2+ release. If you are running SLES9, please upgrade to the latest kernel (SP2+) and install ocfs2-tools and ocfs2console packages.
