I have two M5214 array cabinets - each have 14 x 146Gb 10K drives. I'm looking at creating a fiber channel array but I'd prefer to not purchase a full EVA4000. However, I'm open to options.
Obviously this is for a test/lab setup - and I'm looking at purchasing the equipment on ebay.
So - I'm quite happy if necessary to ditch the M5214 cabinets - but can I use the 28 Fiber drives from them in an MSA1500 ? I have two DL585's - what do I need to connect these together to provide a 4Tb array which can be setup as a Oracle RAC cluster ?
Looking for lots of advice, links to documentation etc etc. Thankyou in advance !
