    Should SAN or local SAS be faster?

    taylorb Expert

      So I am getting a little bit fast performance out of my locally attached SAS vs my high-end FC SAN storage.  Both are 10k disks and configured in RAID5.  The SAN has more spindles though.   Is this normal?   I always kinda thought SAN should blow everything else away.   I am not getting bad performance out of either, just my benchmarks are about 25% better on the local SAS.

       

      Local is a 4 x 146GB SAS connected to an HP p400/512 controller

      SAN is a IBM DS8100 with 14x146GB SAS with 4gb FC.
