  • Robot on 2 separate SANs

    I have 2 backup servers each using storage on separate Storage devices (Clariions) located on separate SANs.  I also have a tape robot that needs to be attached to both these backup servers.  Can a single tape robot host be attached and zoned to 2 different SANs?

  • Fibre Channel or ISCSI for SAN

    We have a SAN that is mission critical to the business. Performance and availabilty are key. I have read that I should lean towards fibre channel for this versus ISCSI but was curious if anyone has seen a noticable difference.

    We are seeing a strange mix of high cache write pending in conjunction with very high front end processor utilization which we believe typically do not occur together. Has anyone else seen this or other performance issues on this storage array?
