1 SAN for multiple Server Clusters

Post by Shamshad A » Thu, 11 Jun 2009 22:53:28


If I have a large SAN, Can I create many SQL Server Clusters?
on the otherway, is it possible to create many cluster servers on one
available SAN?
divide SAN storage area among many Cluster Servers?

One of the key points for SAN and the justification for its cost is that it
can be easily shared among many hosts. So yes, you can many clusters sharing
a SAN.

Yes, but you need to plan the LUNs carefully so that you don't overload a
particular channel in your SAN and end up causing an I/O bottleneck.


Yes. See above.


Each cluster and each resource group will require its own LUNs.
