At first kindly excuse my failurs in english but I hope you can understand me. I'm new to this forum and I have a question I didn't found in the forum's archive yet.
I'm looking for a shared-storage for a planned environment as follows:
- 3 hosts, vmware vsphere standard 5.1
- 15 virtual machines
-- 1x oracle db (mainly write operations)
-- several times mssql server (mainly read operations)
-- 1x ms exchange
- iSCSI or NFS preffered
- in-storage-backup-solution would be appriciated, NAS for backup is available
- at least 4,5 TB of available disk space for the VMs (all together the machines have 2,6 TB of disk space, it's expected that there is a need for another 5 vm in the next 5 years)
On the websites of the storage manufacturers I found several products but I didn't find any information how to find out what product fits best for my needs.
Can anyone help to find out which products probably perform in an acceptable way?
