Good day and please excuse me as I am asking a newbie question. I am an Exchange person and have never really played around with storage. Now that our implementation of Exchange now sits on a SAN I am really trying to learn about SAN'S, NAS, LUNS and at least have a fair knowledge of this discipline.

I am investing into a good old device like so http://www.ebay.com/itm/Supermicro-SuperChassis-CSE-836BA-3U-16-Bay-SAS-Server-Chassis-X7DBI-16GB-/201204169276?pt=US_Computer_Cases&hash=item2ed8b3fa3c and use this as remote storage. What I am also looking to do is install server 2012 as a bare metal and was wondering if I can install the CLI to maybe netapp or EMC or use some sort of simulator. I was looking for guidance to see if this is even remotely possible. Thanks for your time in reading this and hopefully someone can help. I would also like to see if I could connect this or a device to vmware hosts I have.

There is a NetApp Simulator available for download if you have access to NetApp, and the same for EMC VNX Simulator.

and there is an EMC appliance, maybe not simulator called Uber

see here

Normally, these simulators are developed for hosting on VMware vSphere ESXi.

There are no CLI version, the simulators are Virtual Appliances.
