Hi, we will have a SUSE Linux Ent OES network as our prmary file server for 200 users in the next 2 months or so
also have a seperate SQL Server for about 50 users
what we are looking for, open to opinions are SAN
we will be installing a new server, that will run SUSE Linux, OES2, BUT we want all the user files/data to be stored on a SAN.
budget - $10,000 - $20,000
ideally something with a RAID 5,6,10, 50?
would SATA drives be best? or SAS - I heard SAS better with 100-200 users at any given time, logging in, acess data
what we have looked at are
Sun - http://www.sun.com/storage/disk_systems/expansion/
Dell - Equallogic of MD3000/3000i
EMC - seems out of our range. budget wise.
