I'm currently tasked with overhauling our data-center from top to bottom. The first stage is to get our new storage fabric in place.
I'm looking for the community views, experience and knowledge you are welling to share. I have spoke with HP, EMC, Dell, Gridstore, Nutanix, and looked at Windows Storage Spaces.
We are a small company that is going though growing pains as it transitions into a medium size. We are a totally hyper-v shop and have about 25 servers that are currently running the following work loads ranging from, Exchange 2010, SQL 2005-2012, Microsoft CRM 2011, Microsoft GP, and a host of other servers all Microsoft.
No matter what solution I buy my top concerns are flexibly and ease of expansion, performance, and cost effectiveness.
Right now we have about 7.5 TB of live data and could possibly take a large jump if we land certain clients. Thus why I'm concerned about the ease of expatiation.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
