A certain YES is the answer. People are using them with no problems,
so if you are happy not to have them maintained by SUN then go for it.

Main points:

- many companies sell them.

- You can have different size disks in the same server
- Veritas VM / DiskSuite is happy with them
- The general feeling that bigger disks will work in Sun machines, but Sun
only supports disks which it can guarantee will work.
