What are people using for clustering software when connecting Dell servers to San storage?

Were doing something similar, using RHEL 3.x, powerpath, GFS, and
RH clustering (using the DRAC to stonith).  Works well for us, and is
fully supported by Red Hat and EMC, and at least most of it is supported
by Dell.  We don't do Oracle, so I can't comment there.
