Hi, I am spec'ing a VMware solution for a small business using 2 hosts (Hp Servers, VMware Essentials Plus and Shared Storage (HP MSA or Netgrear ReadyNAS). Will be running around 10 VM's. (Windows Servers)
Anyone recomend some decent shared storage that will perform well enough (iSCSI will be fine) and then also how to backup my VM's? looked at Shadow protect by Storage Craft and also Veeam. i will have an Exchange 2010 Server so need that backed up properly (Flush logs) and also Granular restore option. Thinking of using one of those Disk Based Backup products to a cheap NAS box and even copy offsite.
Any advice appreciated..
