Q

Disk storage stability

Who in the market has the most stable and best performing disk storage devices in a high-end environment?
This is a loaded question, as it is a subjective discussion at best since every company has their own metrics for stability/availability and performance for all environment types, including the high-end.

The best way to look at this is to bring in specific vendors and have a bake-off, or bring in an external consultant to do the study of the various products in the market. Also, understand that these measurements may not fit your environment.

Many of the challenges that are experienced in the environment may not have anything to do with the storage devices themselves.

Most outages are actually caused by a human error rather than an outage of the device itself. Just some food for thought.
