Re: [Xen-users] 24TB redundant storage


The simple answer here is to spend lots of money on a NetApp appliance
or two, or some other brand.
If you are going to be serving up vm's, speed is your friend.  The
combination of network, cpu, bus speed all play a role in what you get
out of a san. Also if you go with a ZFS implementation, memory will have
a big impact as well.

Here is a little education for you on what exactly you can expect for
performance, from reasonably priced standard hardware.

There's also FreeNAS appliances from iXsystems, which use FreeBSD+ZFS
underneath, but with a pretty web GUI to manage everything.  The TruNAS
boxes are basically drop-in, plug'n play boxes.
