Subject Interbase/Firebird with a SAN
Author Steve Wiser
Hi All,

Anyone here use a SAN to store the database files and have the server
connected to the SAN over Fibre channel? If so, how do you like it?

We are trying to get a handle on our fast growing storage needs and
adding hard drives to individual servers (and their backup servers) is
starting to get out of control. I am assuming that Interbase/Firebird
will not have a problem with a SAN as I think the OS thinks that the
hard drive is local, but I am not 100% sure.

We are thinking about starting off with a 3 TB SAN from Dell and
attaching it to 8 of our servers, but I would love to hear if anyone
else is doing this and if so how it is going, any pitfalls to avoid,
