Optimal Database Setup Hardware Guide

A little while back I published an article on Enterprise IT Planet called “Optimal Database Setup Hardware Guide“.  In this article I talk about some key points that should be looked at when building a new SQL Server.

  1. Hello,

    Is splitting out the indexes onto on a separate lun/drive preferable to just spreading the database proportionally over two luns/drives?



  2. SCM,
    Yes it is. Access to the indexes will often happen at different times than access to the row data, and if your queries are setup correctly you’ll be mostly writing to the database, while reading from the indexes so you’ll want to have this data broken up onto two different database files each on there own separate LUN.
