Hi every body.
what kind of this solution is better in performance in I/O and manageability ?
a)thirty server with local disks that each server connect to server farm switch with fiber channel (SFP port)
b)thirty server with SAN disks?
in case a we use rack mount servers and in case 2 we use blade servers.

Hi,
>>thirty server with SAN disks?

I think (b) is the right option.

Re: san vs local disk

still confusing... to me storage connected to a server via a fibre channel switch *is* SAN disk... so you need to qualify the difference here... how about actually telling us the products you are considering

Re: san vs local disk

Hi ehsan,

Let us know about the space required for each host.

If it is smaller, then go for blade server and internal storage hard disk.

If size rquired by each host is larger then go for Enterprise / Medium class storages & SAN.
