Hello all, currently we have 3 hosts but we're trimming down to 2. I have had another vendor do an ESXTOP trace for 1 day on our infrastructure and they came up with about 600IOPS average through out the day with 50/50 read write. Ironically the bulk of our oepration is 300IOPS but a syslog server demands 300 itself.
My question is that if I want 6-8 useable TB of storage using RAID DP, what combination of disks should I get? My reseller has been taking a long time getting this answer or assistance from netapp so i'm going to do some legwork myself.
A comparable correctly sized equalogic to our needs would be PS4000X 16x600gb 10k SAS drives. I'm wondering how this translates into a FAS 2040.
