MSA 2050 Performace Direct Attach vs FC SAN connection

Hi 

I have take some time looking for a comparation table about performance on a MSA2050 FC using Direct attach connection to the hosts VS a FC SAN connection.

I have found this link https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=emr_na-a00017538en_us , but need more about , example how much faster is using one or the other connection.

 

Regards

 

William

Re: MSA 2050 Performace Direct Attach vs FC SAN connection

Hi,

the difference is so small that it can hardly be measured.
If you connect by 16GB FC direct or over a 16GB SAN Switch, will make no difference.

This shouldn't matter at all for an MSA.

The number and type of disks and controllers involve the performance.
