Which make of server are you intending to buy? Although both are hetrogenious it's generally better supported if you stick to one source throughout since they can't offload problems onto each other. There really isn't much to chose between the LSI and the HP storage boxes as far as disks and performance goes.

Having used the IBM & HP solutions and now I'm on the Clariion solution, I would recommend the IBM if you want simplicity. The EVA is a pain in the rear end to manage whereas the IBM is much simpler. If you are very experienced the you would find the EMC dead easy. So:

In terms of budget:

IBM
HP
EMC

Ease of use:

IBM
EMC
HP

Growth

EMC
IBM
HP

That's my 2 cents worth!

No they don't! That's why they have e-lab Navigator to check for compatibility issues!
