Has anyone had good experiences (any performance problems) when using a Dell Powervault 220s in cluster mode? I have heard that there is a drastic performance decrease in split bus mode, any light will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It depends what type of cluster is it: failover or loadbalance. When 2 initiators share the same SCSI BUS with one target only one initiator can communicate with the target at a time. In a case of failover it works fine because only one initiator is actually active. In a case of loadbalance (when both initiators are active) you can expect significant delays which also depends on the intensity of the load.
