I have a hyper-v server with virtual machines locally on it. I have two identical hyper-v server machines. One is not in use cause i don't have my SAN built yet. I want to create a fail over heartbeat so I need to have the SAN to do it.
I am building the SAN server. It has 16 SAS drives. The drives are 300GBs each. It will be used to put mt virtual server VHDs on.
What is the best configuration?
Should I make all 16 Drives it into one big Logical Drive - RAID 60? (Has One 16 Port Raid Card) Or Split it up?
What Stripe and Block Size should the Logical Drive Be?
