Storage and Adapter Options

The following tables list the disk array storage models and adapters currently supported by LifeKeeper in shared storage configurations.  For each storage or adapter model, the type of certification is indicated. If storage vendors support other adapter models related to those listed in Storage Adapter Models, then LifeKeeper for Linux supports those adapter models too.  Refer to Storage and Adapter Configuration for details about driver versions and other configuration requirements for these arrays and adapters.

Note that a supported disk array and adapter are not required in LifeKeeper configurations involving non-shared storage with IP failover only or when using SteelEye Data Replication or Network Attached Storage.
