SAP in FATA disks

Hi,

we are planning to expand our EVA4100 with 1TB FATA disks. I just want to confirm the following:

1. what is the difference b/w FC and FATA in terms of speed?

2. are there any impacts using FATA for SAP R/3 and SAP BI applications? are there companies using FATA for SAP?

Thanks
Ed

Re: SAP in FATA disks

FATA disks are intended for low I/O and only 8 hours of work a day. Do not use them for transactional databases.
