I have been asked to put together a solution for a client for a new network. This needs to include back and recovery with some good redundancy.
The biggest issue i have is with the design team, they have approx 4TB of data at present. The Storage solution will need to cope with 10-15TB within the next 12 months. I would like to utilize the Azure platform but i am unsure the best way to attack this without over complicating the solution.
Due to the requirement of 3D Rendering and access speeds for files of 3-6GB data will need to be stored locally, we are looking at two options, Cheap QNAP storage or Faster HP SAN technology. We will be looking to attach the NAS/SAN direct to a HP Server for AD authentication & Security.
I know Azure have the ability to backup/Replicate a Hyper-V machine but is there a solution available for SAN level replication?
Has anyone completed a solution around these requirements as i would appreciate information on any working solution.
