Re: EVA - SQL Best Practices

Really there shouldn't be too much of a dependancy on the EVA itself. I have always recommended keeping log files on separate disks and high access data on RAID 0+1, but that said if I/O's are less of an issue than VRAID 5 is ample.
Dual HBA's, Dual Path, etc, all the usual items...

For availablility you should denfinately check this link out:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/solutions/enterprise/highavailability/whitepapers/ms-eva.html
It has all the info you need for HA/F500 setup & best practise.

All the best,
