We are about to purchase a new SAN. I've got two different quotes with two different configs from Dell Compellent and EMC. Both vendors say the solutions are rated for 2000 IOPS but I've got one vendor saying the others isn't going to do 2000 IOPS so I'm hoping to get a 3rd opinion.
Here is the Compellent config:
38 x 1 TB SAS 7k HDD
10 x 600 GB 10k HDD
10GB Fiber Channel Over Ethernet (Connectivity to the network)
The rest is software and cabling
Here is EMC's config
19 x 2TB SAS 7k HDD
9 x 100GB Fast Cache Flash SSD
20 x 600GB SAS 10k HDD
The rest is software and connectivity.
Please give me your opinions. This should be around 30TB of storage and 2000 IOPS. The EMC is about 28k less in cost that the Compellent and I'm trying to compare apples to apples.
