Hi Vern

Well, yeah but consider Richard's statement:
"Out of curiousity why do you need a SAN for your i if not storing IFS
style documents ?"

This kind of implies that the only reason for considering a SAN is if
you need storage for IFS documents.

I would have just thought needing storage might push you in that
direction so was wondering why the IFS documents were significant to
his question.

With the full SAN implementation used on the new Flex architecture,
everything is on the SAN - not just IFS - even load source, as I recall.

Hi Richard

What is especially important or significant about IFS documents ?
Are you saying you would not consider putting the system i database on a SAN ?
If so, why not ?

What is it you're trying to accomplish ? IASP or something else ?

Maybe I missed it in the previous posts.
