We have been told that we need to put our main departmental file store, which is on a NW 6.5 Sp7 server onto the company VMI. Our data store is about 1 Tb in size. The VMI has a large external i-SCSI SAN. I have been told that it is not a good idea to put large data stores on an external SAN!
I am a VMWare novice and would like to know a bit more before committing myself to anything.
Apologises if this question has already been answered, if so please point me in the right direction. Nothing technical, but as a general overview type of answer, is it Ok to put our data store on an external i-SCSI SAN or should it be put on a Virtualised disk?

Many thanks
