We are just entering the thin provisioning world. We run ORACLE on HP-UX that we are converting from Symmetrix 8830 to cx4-480.
One question that has initially cause some discussion. Here is the scenerio:
We want to run some tests, so we have assigned 6 - 128g thin luns from a 20 disk thin pool to a host. A volume group was created from the luns. We are now restoring an ORACLE database on this volume group.
The question: The volume group was created concatenated (filling 1 lun completely, then starting on the next lun). Should we be using striped on the volume group (filling all 6 luns equally)?
Wondering what others are doing? Any best practices in laying out disk structure before actually migrating from the Symmetrix.
