Hi,

I am looking to migrate a lot of HP boot from san blades from a HP EVA8100 to a HP 3PAR 7200, I have been looking into the best options and was looking at Windows mirroring what does anyone think??

So basicly create a LUN on the 3PAR and present to the host, mirror the current os on the new LUN and then boot into the mirror, then remove the old LUN..

Is this the best method or does anyone elase have a better idea..

Regards
Joolz

I would think that HP Continous Access would be the way to go.  From the wite-up on the functionality a few months back I believe you can replicate the EVA to the 3Par.  You would need MPX controllers to extend the fabric most likely.
