Hello Folks,

I am setting up an HP DL380P / P420i server for ESXI and want to know if anyone has had any experience using 3rd party SSD's in this machine. I need 1TB of storage for 6VM's so was thinking of using 8 of either the Samsung 840 Pro SSD's or 8 of the Intel DC S3700 drives in RAID 10 to get maximum IOPs. Two of the VM's run databases so I want the best performance possible. I would go with genuine HP SSD's but it would cost me 10K just for the drives which is not in the budget. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
