Storage Design for Business Continuity

First Back Continue Last

Storage - Internal SCSI Disks

  • Internal SCSI disks are used in the Mt Xia AIX environment for storage of the AIX operating system.

  • One or more internal SCSI disks may exist in an enclosure

  • In systems where more than one internal SCSI disk exists, software mirroring is used to replicate the AIX operating system.

  • In standalone database systems not connected to the SAN, striping may be used for enhanced performance

  • Quorum requirements is generally not a consideration due to the Mt Xia environment strategy

  • Current architectural direction is to utilize external disk technology for both Application and Operating System volumes.

For assistance with designing, implementing, and supporting your storage systems in a business continuity design structure, please contact Mt Xia.
