We are currently running an EMC san and have several different projects going on right now that require different pools of disk and different IOPS requirements.

I am looking for a tool that will let you choose the type, speed, raid, etc of the drives and will give you a general idea of the IOPS per second available.

In general, the IOPS will be 1 divided by the sum of the average latency and seek time: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/datacenter/calculate-iops-in-a-storage-array/2182
