On my old server, I separated them on to different RAID arrays to improve performance. Using a SAN is new to me, so I'm not sure of the optimal configuration.
SAN: 48 drives. 10K 600GB SAS. RAID 50. 4 Gbps connection.
All 48 drives are part of the same RAID array. I would like to know if there is any benefit to having data and logs in different volumes. I know that if I split my SAN up there can be some benefit, depending on the circumstances. The Dell representative that sold us the SAN said the best performance can be obtained by keeping all 48 disks in one array, and use seperate volumes ("LUNS"?). Sorry if my question isn't clear.
