Which option is better, to have diskless server and boot it from SAN or servers with disk and allow them to boot locally from HDD?
We are planning for a hardware refresh. During discussions with h/w vendor, they suggested to have diskless blades and boot it from attached SAN.! I am not sure, whether this is good option in a long run.? I always thought, the local harddisk in the server was better option, as replacement is easy. However, the vendor informed we would be wasting hard disk space, by having large hard disk and build RAID 5 in it.
