I've got six clustered SQL Instances storing data on a SAN, a SAN that is all RAID10. It has one RAID10 disk pool. Did it make any sense
for me to create separate iSCSI initiators for data and log volumes? I have no RAID5 space on which to store the data. All the information gets the same high-quality access.
Could I have saved myself some time and just made one big disk for each instance, separating logs, data, backup, temp and master in folders?
When the data is sent, via iSCSI, to the SAN, the SAN director takes the data and does what it wants, irrespective of the operating system that sent it.
I think all the old rules of thumb go out the window.
