Looking for recommendations on a good SAN on a budget. I have $40,000 and I want two, so I can spend $20k on the SAN.
Here's what I was looking at:
-Mix of 15k and 7.2k SAS drives (Maybe 4x 600GB 15k and the rest 2TB 7.2K?)
-Dual active-active controllers
-Ability to do RAID 50
I have been looking at EqualLogic and HP Lefthand but they all seem to start at $30-$35k.
We tried Enhance Technology ES3160 but they crashed about every 2-5 days - not a great quality in a SAN.
