Entry Level SAN
Posted on 2013-01-31
My company has purchased a new ERP system and we have budgeted 45K for hardware. We are not a large company (150+ users), however we do run 24/7 and require HA and redundancy. Right now we use VMware ESxi for some production servers - 2 hosts using local storage. This new system will require Oracle DB, which I plan on virtualizing. My thinking is to get two servers, large RAM and processing with 8gb fiber to a single SAN. Next year we will budget for another server and SAN for a replicated site. Any direction would be helpful! Thanks.
