Hi Experts im looking for some advice on what storage unit to purchase.
Budget is Low so i need help $3000.00 Cdn
I have Two HP Dl380 G6 machines both with 24GB Ram and 4X 300GB 10K SAS drives
Running Esxi 4.0.
50 user office enviroment
Host1 has 7 Guest Win2003 machines running on local storage using 300GB drive space
I would like to use Host2 for HA
So i need to come up with a shared Storage Solution for $3000.00 CDN
I have Qnap TS410U with four 500gb 7200 Sata drives
( too many issues with this and i wouldn't consider using it in production..shares keep going corrupt after a couple weeks use)
I was thinking of going with the DELL NX300 with 4X 500GB 7200 Sata drives as it run storage server 2008 it will support iscsi.
Should i go this route or is there something better or comprable i should be looking at?
Thanks in advance
