We have an Equal Logic PS5000XV 300Gbx16 coming to us to act as the datastore for our new completly virtual environment. Exciting! We'll be running RAID50.
We're looking for suggestions on how to partition the SAN? Is there a best practice?
We're going to have 5 VM's running in this environment. Average I/O is about 1100.
All machines are running w2k3 Enterprise:
All sizes are capacities USED on the current machines.
Exchange and File Server = 95Gb
IIS Server & SQL Server = 396Gb
Email Hosting and DNS Server = 50Gb
Development Server = 18Gb
VirtualCenter = 10Gb
We'll be separating the above SQL server to be on it's own sometime next year.
