I never read the linked thread. Just responding to your statement here.
Oh FFS! . . .
Where is my beer. . .
But the linked thread is not relevant to your statement here that I was responding to.
FFS. . .
Would you all be happy if I said " OP is looking to downscale from a column designed network into an IPOD when he requires only 43TB of storage and 1250 IOPS"
damn. . .
You are not understanding. You claimed that size of storage is what decided the need for a SAN or not. That is what is being argued with you. It has nothing to do with anything else.
We all generally understand that at under certain host count a SAN (and the storage it can provide) makes no fucking sense at all.
Why are you guys up my ass about it today?
because you are insisting on a totally different decision factor that doesn't make sense.
Even if you only need 250GB of shared stuff, but you need to share it to enough hosts, then a SAN make sense.
Not in context of the OP, which is a 2 host 1 san solution he's looking for.
So fuck off, all of ya. . . shit.
