SQL Server 2008, Disk Setup

Configuring optimal disk performance is often viewed as much art as science. Yet an understanding of disk performance best practices can result in significant improvements. Some of the many factors that affect disk I/O performance include the number, size, and speed of disks; file allocation unit size; configuration of host bus adapters (HBAs) and fabric switches; network bandwidth; cache on disks, controllers, and storage area networks (SANs); whether disks are dedicated, shared, or virtualized; RAID levels; bus speed; number of paths from disk I/O subsystem to servers; driver versions for all components; factors related to RAID stripes sizes; and workload.
