  • advantage disadvantage using 400 Gig Sata Drives in San

    I’ve been told that while 400 gig drives offer more capacity, that there are performance issues when you really start taxing a san with more than 5 or 6 users.

    The performance of 250 Gig drives are supposed to be better because of the faster time that they can access data.

    Does the Xsan still use only 250 Gig Drives?

    The XServe RAID is also available with 400GB drives, but it does not use SATA drives, only the older and slower Ultra ATA standard.

    Six DV clients is not a lot of bandwidth for a SAN. Our Terrablock server shows no slowdown for 5-6 clients and support up to 12 dual-stream clients at DV resolutions.
