We are evaluating a NetApp storage appliance; particularly the FAS2040. We've come to a cross road in our decision to go with SAS or SATA drives. We're running a medium sized business SQL, Exchange, and general file services. Is the speed of a SAS drive worth the additional expense or should I save my money for other areas and just stick with SATA disks?
Any thoughts about deduplication of data on our production SAN through NetApp?
Thanks in advance!
