• Knowledge about storage usage in SAN & NAS

    Hi experts, I'm new to this forum and have a very basic question. I've joined a new team and have to manage infrastructure (this will be my new experience as well).

  • Delete files on a EMC Isilon SAN

    Would anyone happen to know a way I can delete millions of files (mostly JPGs) on an EMC Isilon SAN? It's a custom operating system so I can't modify it. I can't find a delete function either in the GUI. Thank you very much for your help.

  • How to do rest encryption with a SAN?

    Our organization needs to make sure that our rest encryption is done in one place. If there's shared storage, that seems to be the right place to do it for us, rather than a DAS.

  • Should we put local SQL Server files on NAS or SAN?

    We're preparing to install a new server on SQL Server 2008. Here's our question: What would you recommend - one server with RAID 10 or all the files on a NAS? Or should we just use iSCSI? The new server has about 4 GB of RAM and the database file has 2 GB. What's the best option for us?

  • Slowdown of the SAN due to overusage of temporary tables

    We make use of temporary tables when we develop stored procedures, but they also become very slow when there is a heavy workload. We have an ISCSI SAN running RAID 10, and our database, logs and tempdb (15 GB) are on the SAN. We think the SAN is overworked; the SQL Server shows no CPU. Should we...
