Hello All,

I was talking to an HP rep. He basically told me I can use either SAS or Fibre Channel hard drives.

My understanding was that in a Fibre Channel SAN, you will use SAS, SCSI or SATA drives. WHat is a Fibre Channel hard Drive? and how does it comepare in speed and performance to a SAS drive?
