Secondary Storage: IBM System Storage DS3512 OR Dell Power Vault MD3200i

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the IBM System Storage DS3512 OR Dell Power Vault MD3200i? If so, could you give me your feedback regarding both and the feature differences?

I'm considering both with dual controllers and 12 SAS 15K drives at 600GB.

Andy Yalder -

Are you saying they are the same as NetApp E2600 Series Storage Systems?


I think they might be Dan Nbrown, although you'll have to check they're the same generation and model. Even if they're near enough identical you can't swap bits between them though, disks are keyed one vendor or another.
