  • Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Linux Fiber or iSCSI SAN

Hey Nick - just curious and not trying to split hairs - but what $10000 san?

I've seen and build what I'd call a "NAS" in that price range, but in my mind 
(maybe not in the formal definition though) , SAN is more - like a management 
gui - the ability to manage snapshots, backups, etc. often managed in multiple 
chassis - it's more a multi device network isn't it?

I guess the line is blurring though... We use some linux boxes running DRDB - 
lots of people seem to be going that route anecdotally speaking. But lots of 
tiny points seem to affect performance.

 A standalone SAN? What is your use case for GlusterFS?
