Plan to buy a server with 10GB for the cluster. I plan to have management network, vm port group, NFS,iscsi,motion, DMZ and FT.
Thinking of HP380 or Dell, I think both have onborad 1GB card with 4 port, in addition that i plan to buy two 10GB nic card .
The following is my selection
1. NFS 1*10GB and 1* 1GB (standby) for failover.
2. iscsi 2*10GB one active and one unused .
3, Management 1*1GB
4.vMotion 1GB (vsphere 6.0 does support failover too)
5. DMZ 1GB
6. FT 1*10GB
7. VM port group 1*10GB and 1*1GB for failover.
This case 6*10GB and 3 1GB.
Should i go for all 10GB?
I know the SAN switches are 10GB, VM port group are connected to 1GB.
If i go for all 10GB then we need vm portgorp physical switches to be upgraded too.
I like you comments/suggestion on this.
