Re: set up a RAID array with both SATA and SAS disks

Most companies have a mix of email, databases, file and print and a number of custom applications - each with a different need - and the only viable option was to take a generic . If your business requires high performance, then take the SCSI / Fiber Channel route: if the final speed is not so critical, then you may be able to go with the most cost-effective Serial ATA (SATA) alternative.new level connectivity in RAID solutions, with SATA and SAS technology using the backplane itself. SAS enclosures that began to come to market therefore, in future it will be possible to integrate SAS and SATA solutions within the same RAID array for the first time.

Set up a RAID array with both SATA and SAS disks

To improve the reliability of your PC, we use RAID.It works by copying everything that is sent to the first hard drive to the second, and so it is also known as mirroring. RAID1 consider a hardware-based backup system. If the first hard drive fails, the second takes place immediately.There are other RAID configurations as well, but not all controllers support RAID them.first step is to define the needs of all capacity-intensive applications E / S and all the megabytes per second-intensive applications, or else the random versus sequential applications.established capacity needs in a management perspective, there will be a mixture of these disks in the same enclosure: disks SATA and SAS disks can then be marked as such and prioritized within the RAID RAID solution.create several sets: then, using various devices to go RAID servers and storage applications available for them.start with the application and then select the best disk RAID sets for this application. Thus, it moves from one application to make certain that the RAID services rather than, as before, using RAID and making sure it can serve the request.

Re: set up a RAID array with both SATA and SAS disks

Once you have determined the applications that require the disc, and the solution providing the necessary volume of storage is in place, the next step is to provision out that storage to each server as it can still be needed.This improved with the use of virtualisation, where allocation and expansion of the storage environment is much faster and simpler to implement, monitor and manage. as you need more storage, you add on an "as required basis", adding either SATA or SAS depending on the needs and growth of different applications. The difference is that a single storage solution can meet the requirements of both the bandwidth and performance sequential and random grow easily to future needs of the business.
