Raw and virtual disks for the same VM?

Is it possible to add both RAW and virtual disks to a virtual machine?

For a VM that will run an Oracle DB instance (SE2), I am thinking of using virtual disks for the OS and Oracle binaries, and RAW disks for the Oracle datafiles.

The RAW disks would be in RAID1, mirrored to a secondary storage array.  A second VM on a second physical host would be able to mount the database from the secondary storage unit in case of failover.

This is not a cluster, but a failover scenario.

Thanks
