Managing SAN Volumes/LUNs efficiently
Posted on 2013-01-21
I hope disk space is a issue for everyone. Our requirement and issue maybe bit different. We want to manage our SAN volumes/LUNs in chunks to minimize the impact of any disaster. For example, if our all users are being stored in one LUN and something happens to SAN or that LUN, all users will be affected; therefore, we want to divide them in multiple chunks.
So we got users' home folders that are taking 10TB space on our SAN. Currently we have only one LUN for it. Now we want to divide them in 5 chunks of 2TB each. I need suggestions, on which criteria we should distribute our users and how will we maintain it in future? or is there any other suggestion in this regard?
