Hi guys, I've got a Blade and CX300 SAN VMware setup and I'm looking to create an DR site less than a Km away. I've got access to fibre between the buildings or I can just use Ethernet. I'm also running CommVault for backups (incase there's a decent replication option there). I've spoken to our vendor and they've proposed a compatible CX4 array to replicate the data over FC, to which I'll have 3 ESX server boxes connected. Unfortunately, the cost of the EMC software, CX4 and disks etc blows my budget by an extra 20%. I've got a $75k budget. $25k for the servers (they need 4 FC and 4 NIC) and I'm estimating another $10k for services, connectivity and others costs, leaving me $40k for storage. The data I have to replicate totals 3TB (VMFS and an RDM LUN) but the total storage on the CX300 comes to 6TB. Being noobly in the storage side of things, I was wondering what solutions you guys had? Cheers.
