  • Synchronising SANs before replication

    What is the best approach to synchronising SANs before I start replicating? Should I do a full tape backup and recovery and then start replication?

    I do not know much about SAN's, I want to setup a SQL Server to use a SAN. 1. Should I use a SAN drive to install the OS or is it best practice to install the OS on a local drive on the server? 2. Should I install SQL SERVER on the SAN or on a local drive on the server?

    StarWind claims to turn any standard server into a fault-tolerant, fail-safe Windows iSCSI target SAN.

  • Locations throughout the US need a storage strategy. Our current strategy has servers and individual machines backing up to web-based services

    We have a data center I was thinking of acquiring a SAN unit from, then using DFS to copy server files to the SAN and then back that information to a remote storage site. How do I accomplish this with laptops? Do I use folder redirection, that takes too much time when logging in?
