  • ESXi iSCSI Solution

    Hey

    Im looking to upgrade our VMware ESXi 4.0 Infrastructure from our HP Proliant DL580 with internal SAS Drives to a SAN solution using maybe iSCSI.

    i was looking at http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpr...3Dphl%26P%3D23

    I am a bit of a Newbian when it comes to SAN.

    We will running about 6-10 VM's Production Servers, Windows File Server, LAMP Server and some other servers.

    I was wondering what Exchange 2007 runs like on VM's with iSCSI storage?

    I have a 5,000 budget.


    Im really looking for some "Pro" advice really.

    Thanks

    you can get some more information here

    Regarding iscsi storage solutions - I would also look into Equallogic (Dell) IBM and (lower-end) Iomega

    Will this be one server connecting to the SAN?

      For now 1 server will be connected to the SAN, untill i setup ESXi on our DL380 G5, which will be very soon.
