Can we switch from EMC CX300 (FC) to Dell MD3600i (10gbe iSCSI) Without Moving Off of Our Sunfire V490?
Posted on 2014-12-05
We recently migrated a server from a SunFire v480 connected to an EMC CX300 to a Dell 2950 connected to a MD3600i. It went smoothly and our database application is running great (10gbe on copper) on the new platform.
Now, however, we are looking at migrating a second platform over to a new, separate Dell MD3600i and we want to avoid having to move away from the SunFire v490.
Is it possible or is it inadvisable to try to run the Sun fire UltraSPARC box with the Dell Xeon-basedMD3600i?
It would be a lot of trouble to move the entire platform over and I noticed that I could drop two sun 10gbe Nic's into the back of the V490.
Thanks for any help in advance.
