We are considering moving some apps from individual blades (a growing expense) to a partition of an existing, underused i520. One hang up is DASD, especially moving or reloading the terabytes of data currently held in our SAN. With the new partioning of an i5, especially when running an AIX, or Windows partition it seems that we might be able to access a SAN. Is this a fair expectation? Has any one had success with this, or are we still tied to the 'internal' iSeries storage?
