Have a question regarding SAN performance specifically EMC VNX SAN. I have a significant number of processes spread over number of blade servers running concurrently. The number of processes is typically around 200. Each process loads 2 small files from storage, one 3KB one 30KB. There are millions (20) of files to be processed. The processes are running on Windows Server on VMWare. The way this was originally setup was 1TB LUNs on the SAN bundled into a single 15TB drive in VMWare and then shared as a network share from one Windows instance to all the processes. The processes running concurrently and the performance is abysmal. Essentially, 200 simultaneous requests are being serviced by the SAN through Windows share at the same time and the EMC SAN Storage Course is not handling it too well. I'm looking for recommendations to improve performance.
Thanks in advance...
