Comparing Equal Logic PS4000VX and HP EVA 4400
Posted on 2010-08-22
I will be virtualising our current infrastructure (16 servers) and my main questions lies in the selection of the appropriate SAN. I'm unsure of which SAN would more suitable.
We will be using VMware Vsphere 4 Essential plus
The SAN options are:
- Dell Equal logic PS4000VX with 16 x 450GB 15K RPM disks
- HP EVA 4400 with 12 x 450GB 10K RPM disks
Our requirements are:
- IOPS: 2000
- Bandwidth: 65MB/sec
- data used: 600GB
I'd appreciate if someone could give me some feedback on these two different SANs in order to compare them.
