I believe we need to use fiber channel as the connectivity medium for your requirement. SCSI cannot be used for your requirement as you need to connect 3 servers away from data center. You need to use fibre switches to connect the different servers to the SAN box

do you have any link to SAN storage management Console, it doesn't matter which manufacturer. I would like just to know after you set up the hardware and connectivity how do we configure the SAN.

I will increase the question to 400 pts

thanks
