iSCSI Xen Storage SAN Switch Help
Posted on 2011-03-07
I currently have a Citrix Xen Virtual environment, with 2 iSCSI paths running on two network cards from the SAN and the Xen Servers connected into Dell PowerConnects 5548's, along with 50 VOIP phones, 65 workstations and 10 virtual machines running on another set of bonded nics.
I was considering getting three switches to completely segregate the iSCSI traffic from the network, using: (1 as a cold spare...)
SG100D-08 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch
Manufacturer Part# SD2008T-NA
My concern would be are these adequate enough considering thats all they would have connected to them is a SAN and three Xen servers, with dedicated iSCSI traffic over each switch. (For redundancy.)
Any thoughts would ber greatly appreciated...
