Question about shared storage arrays
From: "mcgillim () cis uab edu" <mcgillim () cis uab edu>

 I am currently charged with finding a storage solution for our company's
collection of databases. One option that has been presented to me is to
share a storage array with a company that provides other solutions for us.
We would have our own set of disks in the array. My question is, has anyone
here done this, or does anyone have any sort of knowledge of the security
implications of this measure. (What are my risk factors? Can other people
usng the array get to my data and if so how easy is it? etc....) I am
currently looking for answers online, but someone with some real experience
with this would benefit my cause greatly.

Thanks in advance!
