Dear Sir, i recently purchase HP proliant dl 360 G5 server and Dell Powervalut NF 500 NAS. i dont have any 1 GB switch in the network. all i have is normal 3 Com switch 100 Mpbs.
Main objective of the server is to read data from NAS and perform some quick calculations. i want the data transfer rate to be very high. i mean i dont want my server to communicate with NAS over network. is it possible to connect to HP server direclty to NAS using some fiber cable like peer to peer.
There will be direct communication between NAS and HP server over fiber cable. can i acieve this setup. what do i need to purchase to perform this.
Remember i want the direct communication between NAS and server. two end s of cable connecting to NAS and Hp server.
