I'd like to get the option of storage users on which storage solution to go with.
I archive planetary data at the rate of around 1.5 additional TB's per week. So far I have ~200TB of data on hand which includes everything from large image files that get up to 4-5GB, small browse images (10KB) that add up to 100's of millions, lots of text files, large databases (5TB), 5 VMware hosts, etc.
I currently have two Equallogic groups - each with 6 PS6500E's. One group stores the primary copy of my data and replicates to the DR group. I rely heavily on replication and snapshoting.
Does anyone have any experience with Isilon? good or bad?
