I'm wondering how bad preformance will be if I send two Dell R610 servers out with a Netgear ReadyNAS 316 with 18TB of space. I would connect this via ethernet crossover cables to both servers, install vmware esxi 6.0 on the servers and use the ReadyNAS as a shared storage space. The drives are WD30EZRS: IntelliPower 64MB Cache. SATA 3.0Gb/s
Couple things that I would be concerned with are:
1: IOPS load this can handle.
2: no Ten GB capability
