Dell PS6100X or HDS HUS110

Recommended Posts

we need to make a decision fast about a new storage machine

we have two remaining offers:

1. Dell PS6100X . 2 controllers each with 4 1GB ports (total of 8) and 24 total disk slots (12 will be free for extra growth)

2. HDS HUS 110. 2 controllers each with 4 1GB ports and 4 fibre ports (total of 8GB & 8 Fibre) and 24 total disk slots (12 will be free for extra growth)

both machines come with 12X600 GB SAS 10K

our need is this:

4 SQL servers physical machines who hold the data LUN on the storage (each generating 500-750 IOPS 99% of the time with a 2000 IOPS peak)

3 Virtual hosts each hosting 4 machines (i don't have IOPS for these machines but they are web servers so the should be relatively small IOPS)

Backup Server using less than 1000 IOPS

so we have a total of 6000+ IOPS

our current storage space has 2.4 TB and we do not expect it to grow over the next few years over 4TB

we will need replication to a DR site at some point in the next 2-3 years

both machines are priced the roughly same. which one should i take?
