We want to virtualize our File Server and Database (Sql and Oracle) Servers.
File Server size is about 1 TeraBytes
Oracle and SQL Database size are about 200 GigaBytes.
We use a Dell MD3000i iscsi storage.
So questions is:
What is the best solution to store the data? (i.e. Using standard VMDK , Raw device or other solution)
For example about the File server create a big standard VMDK file (Size 1TB) that contain all users files may be not the best solution; Because in case of corruption of this file we can lose all users data moreover if i need to create a snapshot may be very slow.
Is there a documentation about best pratices about it?
