I have a DroboPro that is currently connected to a GS748TS switch. Also connected to the switch is a server and few workstations.
Which method would be better in performance?
Add a NIC to the server. Direct connect the DroboPro via iSCSI to the new NIC.
Add a NIC to the server. Create a dedicated VLAN for the new NIC and Drobo.
Add a NIC to the server and attach it to a separate switch. DroboPro connects to the switch. Becomes a private network, similar to a VLAN.
- DroboPro has a single ethernet connection.
- Server has a single ethernet connection (currently).
- Workstations each have a single ethernet connection.
