Did you get anywhere with this, as my company is looking to install a SAN network.
While I personally do not have any experience with SAN's, here is what little I do know:
Storage Access Network (SAN) and Network Access Storage (NAS) solutions are gaining popularity.
Unfortunately both solutions potentially come with a performance penalty depending on configuration. The best performance is delivered by a set-up in which hard drives are directly connected to the bus via the SAS interface on the same computer that hosts the file vault service.
Hope this helps.
We recently began using an Equallogic SAN solution with our PDMWE. It was extremely simple to set up.
Our benchmarking shows a slight performance increase over our previous file Vault(a SCSI internal drive array). We expect this to increase as we move client systems over to a gigabit network.
We are not using the SAN replication functionality with anything relating to PDMWE, Im aware this defeats the purpose of a SAN.
You may have issues hosting your SQL database on a SAN because the SAN might not have 100% availibiltiy.
