SAN vs DAS
Posted on 2006-03-30
We are out of space. We have 3 seperate servers running SQLServer, 2 on Server2k3, 1 on Server2k. All boxes are Dell PowerEdge variants.
I am looking for a single solution that will expand capacity on all 3 servers. I am a newb in this realm, and I'm wondering if I can use a SAN solution, or would it make more sense to use a DAS solution for each box?
Areas of consideration:
2. Compatibility with SQL Server (it's my understanding that it requires block addressable storage)
