We are evaluating this both for internal use and for client deployments. Utilizing Storage Spaces and Scale Out File Server we hope to supplement our HP SAN and Starwind software based solutions we are currently offerings our clients.
VA technologies have shipped us the following:
- 1 x DataON DNS-1640D - 24 Bay 2.5" 2U Enclosure
- 2 x LSI - SAS 9207 - 8E 6GB/s HBA's
- 4 x Startech (1m) External SAS 8088-8088 Cables
- 6 x Seagate 600Gb 15k 12gbps SAS Hard Drives with Turbo Boost
- 6 x Seagate 900Gb 10K SAS Hard Drives
- 3 x Seagate 1200 SSD 800Gb 12gbps SAS SSD
These together with the servers currently in our normal lab enviroment should make for a pretty speedy storage solution. Over the next couple of weeks I will be posting on how the trial goes, and conclusions reached.
