The biggest advantage of the Dell MD3000i for me is the ability to add a few more drives to the SAN as needed. Let’s say I have an E: drive on a server that needs to go from 500 gigabytes to 800 gigabytes. I can just throw a few more physical drives in the SAN, partition the 800 gigs and copy the data over. I just attach the SAN to that server and I’m done. Adding capacity took a lot longer with direct-attached storage. In addition, the consolidated SAN storage saves 24 to 36 hours per year in administration time.
