  • Hardware Selection

    HI All,

    I got 10-15 VM's need to run on our Primary Site. One Exchange server for 100 Mailbox , few SQL Servers, sharepoint, SCCM 2007, and few Web Servers. (all are business critical Servers)

    My Plan is 3 x ESX 5.0 Servers ( standered)

    2 x IBM 3690- X5 ( 48GB RAM) and DS 3524 8GB FC Storage for MAIN Site

    1 x IBM 3690-X5 ( 48GB) and DS 3524 SAS ( 300GB x 24) storage for DR Site

    Now i feel, this is going to over kill the budget? Any recomendation?

        I would reckon your best bet is to get a consultant in to do some proper planning on what you will need.

        For your DR site your really replicating the first site so that in the event of a critical failure you can run directly from there so duplicating everyhting would be the way to go.

        What is your current storage use and predicted storage use??? I ask because the DS 3524 has a limitation of 14.4TB
