Perhaps.  I think some people make hard rules where in fact they would

thinking can be hard, and it is much easier to just follow a hard rule

Most DC managers have a bit more clue and good reasons than simply rules for rules' sake.

Mainly logistics: if all the center's disks are SAS (or whatever other standard you choose) in only one or two vendor's SANs (or whatever other cabinet you choose), it makes the Operation staff's job a whole lot easier, thus helping to ensure greater uptime.

for large site, server owners would ask for space and not for disks, it
would be upto to the storage guys to provide it and they like every one
else like to KISS and thus usually standardise.

Very true. Also the server owners don't like to pay a lot, so there's negotiation and "needs clarification"...
