Busy getting clients live on software at the moment.
SQL Server - SSL Encryption - Performance Overheads
Am aware that will need to test it - made a great deal harder that production and test kit is different - there are 30 apps on the itanium live server v 1 app per test server on x64 :( Will have to schedule a few days of downtime in the coming months
Device CAL, User Cal or Processor license needed for SQL 2008 (architecture explained inside)?
Definitely speak to MS to confirm your licensing. The license choice generally comes down to the number of users though - the cost per cpu for sql 2008 enterprise is 10-15k last time i looked - the cal was a couple of hundred - so a high cpu low user system is much better with CAL. A public high usage system is best with processor licenses.
San Performance - Number of servers connected
Thats a fair answer; my experience with HP EVA systems have seen considerable degredation in read / write performance as we added additional servers to it. At some point the cards / processors of the DS3400 will hit a limit and I am trying to work out how to determine that limit. Am seeing heavily constrained write performance even to dedicated disks at the moment.
