I'm looking information about SAN storage.

In my case, I want to use 3 physical servers and 1 SAN to manage 10-15 virtual servers.

What is the best solution : ISCSI (1Gb/s) or Fibre Channel (4Gb/s)?

What kind of device are you using ?

For the moment,  I'm interesting  about HP technologies with bladesystem c3000 and msa2324.

I've a dom0 with a debian lenny amd64 system and some domU still with

I've used lvm, set up a volume group and assigned each domU to in a
logical volume.
Now we have purchased some HBA to connect to a SAN storage.
There is a way to connect my domU to the SAN storage?

Yes.  Like this:

By George, I think he's got it. =)
