Got it. That makes more sense now..

does this mean they will know which disc to open and it is actually recoverable? I am confused as on one hand people say "all data is lost in raid 5" then on the other hand they say "send it out for recovery"..how can you recover data that is "lost" if that is the case? Forgive my newbie questions.

how did your recovery go in your case? and how did you know which disks to open? the bad discs or the good discs or all 8?

I have already sent all 8 drives out for recovery, so I am sure the next logical question back is "which drives do you wish to open to recover which data?" That's why the original question. :-)

Just to clarify, I don't need all the data, just transaction logs from the last 3 days. Maybe 1MB of data total?

What is the definition of a "full" set of data? Is it possible transaction log files for one day are still on one of the working 6 drives? Or are you saying the data is in small chunks over all eight drives and opening one good drive is a waste of time?

comment iscsi versus non-iscsi san?
so you are saying the older model is faster? I think with 2 db servers, we should be fine then.

comment iscsi versus non-iscsi san?
For our current DB and Web server, we are running Raid 10 on dell r510 and r620 servers. We plan to set up Hyper V next week, so we can start using live migration capability (within our cabinet and to a offsite server). Which bring up a related question, Is it not more cost effective to just use Hyper V live migration rather than install a SAN? My focus is two part- HA-DR, speeding up our application would be a bonus in this case.
