I have about 60 servers that I need to virtualise , ranging from exchange 2010 , many sql 2008 R2 servers etc.
The current diskspace usage is 21.6TB
What I would like to Hardware Advice.
preferably HP hardware because we changing all our equipment to HP.
What would be good Vmware certified servers? Make and model + any add ons required like extra 4 port cards and fiber cards to connect to san etc.
With regards to Storage hardware.
I was thinking 2 sans. 1 with fast disks and 1 with cheap sata disks
The fast san will be for OS's LUNs and servers requiring fast disk access.
The slow SAN will be for large servers not requiring that fast access.
What SANs would you experts recommend and please specify add ons required , cards , configuration advice etc etc.
Im looking for a complete solution.
