Disk and Tape access over the same fibre adapter
Just got a new client that wants to do some LANfree backups, but they don't
believe me when I tell them that the recommended way is to have a separate
HBA for disk and tape. They don't think that mixing the 2 will be a
performance issue. I remember a couple years ago this was an issue of data
corruption, but that has been addresses.
Can someone point me to any whitepapers or documentation explaining why they
should spend a couple more $'s and get an additional adapter for those
server they want to do LANfree backups on?
