I am currently upgrading my SAN from a Compellent SAN running raid 10 to a Fusion-IO SAN with 720GB of front side flash. Backside infrastructure is VMWare 5.1 running on two DL360's with 100gb ram each.
Network infrastructure is all Cisco. Both the Compellent and Fusion are connected to two Cisco 3650G with half of their connections going to each one.
The data network is in 172.16.110.xxx
has all of the ports in VLAN 110.

My warranty on the Compellent is expiring shortly. I have installed the new SAN and run performance tests with Iometer. The Iometer tests show the old Compellent disks giving better Iops. 22k vs 17k.... I find it hard to believe that my 5 year old Compellent does better than my new SAN with front loading flash.
