Hi there,

I thought I'll share some good articles and information regarding the "Boot from SAN" architecture decision, as it keeps on coming back...

Have a read of these articles

MSCS on ESX ... http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/index.jsp?topic=/com.vmware.vsphere.mscs.doc_50/GUID-568C3423-37F2-4B61-A2CF-1945ACF2F807.html


I'll add more articles soon, but in the mean time, please share your experience and recommendations... I suspect that ESX + HP Blade combos will get some interesting comments...

cheers.
