Measure IOPS in Windows 2012 4 node cluster , FO SAN and iSCSI

Hi, guys

We are presently studying if we need a new data center.
We have:
- 4 nodes, 2012 R2 cluster ( hp C3000 with BL460c g6 and has 34 virtual servers of which 6 are Linux )
- they connect to 3 types of storage
        - FO SAN (EVA 7200)
        - FO MSA 2000fc
        - iSCSI - HP 1200AiO (Windows 2012 R2 as OS)

I've tried perfmon but the more I read the less I understand!

Can anyone help with suggestions and/or reading material ?

What are your workload types?

SQLIO is great for Db style testing.

IOmeter can be configured to test a wide range of IOPS or throughput needs.

JetStress is for Exchange type testing.

Our storage testing has been for Scale-Out File Server cluster and Storage Spaces SSD and HDD performance. We use the above.
