adding additional drives to physical servers
Posted on 2013-11-26
How easy is it to add a new drvie to a physical server, in general. Our IT section has a physiucal server with a 400Gb data drive, which is hoverting around 85% full, but they dont seem to bothered at this - and say if data grows they will add in additional storage? Is this a dangerous strategy? Do "full drives" typically affect performance? Or is it common to wait until drives are near full before adding in additional storage? Is it a quick fix to add in a second drive, or replace the old drive with one with higher capacity?
