FW: BINARIES - San or Local Storage

KATHY!  So you feel like a database monkey too!

We have two Clariion SANs.  The servers I work on have the installs on
the local disk.  Part of the thinking behind it is if the server
completely crashes, they just rebuild and reinstall, and attach the data
disks.  I am in the Windows world unfortunately.=20

Good luck.

Subject: BINARIES - San or Local Storage

We are in the process of moving to 10G and getting a new SAN EMC Clarion
Storage Array.  We also MAY be going to RAC.  These are Solaris Boxes

The question is I have read conflicing things about whether to put the
binaries on the local internal disks or the SAN arrays.

I have always put the binaries on the local internal disk.  What do you
do
and why?   =20

Is the local reads for the binaries that much quicker?
