iSCSI Switches for NETAPP
Posted on 2014-04-28
we are planning to go for a NETAPP as storage.
We will use iscsi or nfs.
Now I have several quotes for the SAN stack, the SAN switches.
The price difference is huge.
HP wants 10.000 EUR per 10Gb switch, 24 SFP+ ports -> HP5920AF-24XG
DELL wants 5.000 EUR per 10Gb switch, 24 SFP+ ports -> N4032F-24 SFP+
I have no experience with these kind of switches.
Can recommend other switches or can I use the DELL ones without any surprises ?
My setup will be 3 hosts from DELL and HP mixed.
The SAN STACK from DELL
The Storage from NETAPP.
Is this setup ok ?
What do you think ?
