@Dan W:

Thanks for the comment. I don't think there's anything to update with this - mount points haven't changed in a while.

Also, almost 100% certain there are no performance implications of choosing mount points vs drive letters. From a theoretical perspective, I'm not sure how it would introduce latency or performance gates, and I certainly haven't heard of any issues associated with them.

Thank you very much for this article. I have been searching for best practices or performance data to quell my fears of adding another layer of windows management complexity to my database.

Since this article was written a while back, do you have any updates to this best practices list? Have you seen any performance implications of using mount points versus drive letters?

Thanks again for your work here, it is a huge help.
