Compaq DL 380 And Smart Array - Oracle Server

Hi, We have a very dynamic database here that grows 400Gb per year. At present we have a Compaq DL 380 with 2 Smart Array 5300 controllers (each with 2 channels). We need a better throughput on the Raids. We have to stay with HP-Compaq products for corporate reasons. I was thinking about buying two Smart Array 5304 controllers ( with 4 channels each). What other product should we have a look on ?...

    Hi,

    We have a very dynamic database here that grows 400Gb per year. At
    present we have a Compaq DL 380 with 2 Smart Array 5300 controllers
    (each with 2 channels). We need a better throughput on the Raids. We
    have to stay with HP-Compaq products for corporate reasons.

    I was thinking about buying two Smart Array 5304 controllers ( with 4
    channels each).

    What other product should we have a look on ?

    I have a similar server (not running oracle), using two 5304
    controllers connectined to 56 x 15k drives in raid 1+0. I can copy
    from one card (26 disks attatched) to the other (26 disks also
    atattched) at a breathtaking 80mb/s or about 6mb per spindle for
    sustained writing...

    What sort of throughput are you seeing with your setup? I wasn't very
    impressed with mine...

    Good luck with these shoddy products.

    Cheers

    Ralph.
