I would recommend leaning towards Netapp with the 3 different configurations. Oracle has utilized them and they expand to the PB with ease. I’ve worked with EMC and Hitachi platforms but for your configurations, I would lean towards Netapp. You’ll be looking at the 6000 Series.

You should create a new control group and include as only Item *LINK. That will save all of the IFS except the /QSYS.LIB and the /QDLS. When editing the control group items you can display the Help text for more info.

Hi I am not from SAP background. My office uses SQL. But we use Raid 1+0. Reason for this is by using this raid, the response is faster. That is all I can share with you

I would say to be honest its a question of budget. In an ideal world you would have resilient dedicated primary and backup hardware for all services / tasks. It also depends on the size of your estate and how many users it supports. If for instance you take a DHCP server as an example, [...]

What happened to the RAID that you needed a disk to repair it? If a single disk failed, replacing the disk with a new disk should have done the trick. The RAID card should have rebuild the array to the new disk automatically.

This <a href=”http://blog.integrii.net/?p=24″>blog post</a> talks about it a little, and someone gives some info about how to correct the problem without wiping the array.

You’ll want to use the Dell disks. Disks that aren’t from Dell aren’t going to be supported. The Dell disks have code in their BIOS that the dell server uses to diagnose problems before they become problems so that you can proactively replace the disk before it completely fails.

Tape will never die due to compliance issues. It is being replaced as near-line backup due to performance and capacity. Nowadays you will see backups being executed to disk first and then tapes (D-D-T). Now with technologies like dedupe and VTL, tapes are coming from 2nd step to 4 step for archival purposes. But Tape [...]

No, the bits always have to be copied over the network from the storage server, to the Hyper-V server, then written back to the Storage Server. EMC and VMware are working on this in VMware’s vSphere 4.1 release, but it will only work with EMC storage arrays. I’m sure others will latch on to these [...]
