How MPIO can be used and help you….[with video and no sound]

As a IT guy i often (more than i like) struggle to understand all the nice acronyms that IT vendors come up with , and what those can do for my business / mental health 🙂

A quite common term in storage design it’s MPIO , that basically means that a server has 2 (or more) network links (either fiber , iscsi, FCoE , whatever…) to access a disk hosted within a SAN .

Based on my experience there are many folks out there that don’t understand exactly what this technique can do, so i created a small demo to try to show off what MPIO is and why it’s important…

This demo is done with a Windows 2008 R2 VM hosted in VMware ESXi 4.1 Update 1 and connected to a Dell Equallogic PS6000 SAN. The MPIO concept should be valid to any other type of system…But please test your environment before you go live !

Hope you can enjoy it…

      Anyway I hope that even without sound it can be helpful.
