Calculating IOPS of current SAN and possible replacement SAN
Posted on 2011-05-11
I'm currently in the early stages of replacing 2 IBM SANs with possible an 2 HP EVA 4400s.
In our current environment we have:
IBM DS 4300 (14) 2Gb Fc 146GB 10k drives
IBM DS 4700 (16) 4Gb Fc 300GB 15K drives
Can someone please give me a rought calculation on the IOPS of each of those SANs? I should note that each are configured as seperate storage spaces.
I'm looking at replacing those with:
(2) HP StorageWorks EVA 4400 (24) 300GB 15K drives
What would be the IOPS of this kit?
Any input\feedback is greatly appreciated.
