Hi we're choosing between getting a SAN or DAS set up. Dell 6650, 4 procs, 4GB Ram. The first option we were considering was getting a Dell PV220s as Direct attached storage to the server. RAID 10 6*146 GB (we can config this as we want basically). The other option would be to Slice out 250GB from our hosting provider's SAN (RAID5). The SAN seems like a painless and scalable solution. The hosting provider claims that it will offer just as good performance as a the DAS, and is more fault-tolerant. (The only downside is that it's more expensive). They will adjust the SAN if there is contention for I/O resources on the between several applications, so far they have needed to do this once. Current config: C&D would be on the server, 2 different RAID sets C: OS & Executables & tempdb RAID1 73GB D: LOG RAID1 73GB E: DATA 250GB on SAN Any comments on going with the SAN iof getting a DAS?
