Can I completely separate 2 storage areas in the same EVA4400?
Posted on 2010-08-12
We are going to procure 2 EVA4400, we have 2 Data Centers, so 1 for each Data Center, and connected between them through a FC switch to get replication, business continuity and so.
We have 2 Departaments and I would like to know if it´s possible to separate the storage area of both departaments, but sharing the same pair of EVA4400. One department is asking me for P2000 for their systems (exchange,data server...) and the other department is asking me for EVA4400 for their systems (corporate applications,...)....so I am wondering whether we could use the same pair of EVA4400 (active and standby), but differentiating the physical storage blocks, so every department would have their own physical storage area.
I guess the only issue to bear in mind is the growing needs of every department...since EVA4400 limit is 96 TB, isn´t it? Or when the time came, we could buy other 2 new EVA4400.
