Remote storage solutions are becoming more and more common across Enterprises. In addition to needing databases and application servers capable of handling large amounts of data and complex queries, organizations also need robust storage technology to ensure data availability and integrity. Additionally, enterprises are assessing the best way to consolidate information resources. Most of them are evaluating the file-based structures using NAS for consolidation. It is becoming more and more common to run multiple services and process from a remote storage that has lower deployment, management and operational costs than a Direct Attached Storage.

Oracle Application Server has traditionally been deployed by customers on Direct Attached Storage. The purpose of this note is to describe the proper use of OracleAS with NAS devices form the functional point of view. The storage solution must itself provide a reliable set of features described herein. It is not the intention to describe in detail the peculiarities and specifics of remote storage options nor to describe their features in details, but instead to provide the basic functional settings required to install OracleAS in a remote storage. Finally, this document does not focus/include any performance considerations - i.e. any performance tuning aspects related to the storage device, should be deferred back to the appropriate vendor as needed.
