Re: Can I use Storage Blade SB40c as a shared storage?

Hi,

No I don't believe you can.
The SB40c storage blade only connects to an adjacent server blade, so it wouldn't be shareable.

If you need shared storage, it looks like you'd need the SB600c.

Cheers,

Re: Can I use Storage Blade SB40c as a shared storage?

Rob is correct!

The SB40c connects to the adjacent blade server as direct attached storage!
For details see:

The SB600c is an all-in-one solution that allows file access as NAS but also shared block access via iSCSI.
For details see:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12789_div/12789_div.HTML

You can use it for clustering; out of the document mentioned above:

The Microsoft iSCSI Target can be used as target storage behind a Microsoft application cluster. For more information on this implementation read the whitepaper on this topic found at http://www.hp.com/go/AiOStorage.
