Hey Flo, I'm sure there are other good solutions, but I already have the xraid unit and fiber card. I want to ad the fiber channel card to an already productive SCSI set-up which includes a medea 150 gig drive. Is there any card order I need to follow or issues running both? This is how I have it set-up at the moment:
Dual 1 gig G4 mirrored drive doors
Slot 1 Video Card
Slot 2 empty
Slot 3 and 4 Media100 P6000
Slot 5 SCSI card 150 gig medea drive
Additionally to an XServe RAID we have an InforTrend SATA->FC chassis which is cheaper, faster and has better support.
[mfm000]"And, will I be able to share media between M100 HD and SW systems?"
If you have a SAN, yes, you will be able to share Media files between sw, HD and Media 100 i like we do it today. We use FibreJet from commandsoft.com as a very robust and easy to setup and maintain SAN controller software. Great product with great support.
