I need help with some SAN storage advice.
I work for a small (20 user) software firm that needs some vm's. We are unable to afford SAN's systems from the big vendors (10k+) so we are looking at some smaller devices. I am concentrating on two,
My goal is to create iscsi for backup purposes, and to provide logical disk space for my vm's. Again, this is not for a large company.
Any advice as to which one is better? Is it possible to perform database applications using this as a iscsi target with reasonable speed? I don't need overkill, but I don't want it slow either. Would Exchange, SQL and Pervasive be reasonable for 20 users using either of these devices?
Any advice is appreciated.
