I won’t play coy and string you along. I will just expound on my reasons in my choice for our new storage then give you the answer you have waited for.
Does it perform within the parameters set (see below)? Can I measure objectively? What changed parameters caused differences in expected output? Are all features included or must I make a compromise? Is it easy to manage? Can I expect someone else to manage this? Does it fit with my long-term goals? Can it scale with my needs? Is there anybody out there?
So here I am in my office at ipHouse finishing up the last runs of benchmarking reviewing my posts I have already done for Tegile’s Zebi and Tintri T540 appliances. I still need to finish one for Nexsan but won’t have time until later this weekend to complete it.
As I am getting closer to posting the actual results I wanted to share the storage and testing configurations now instead of including all of this in the results posting.
Final stages of storage evaluation for our VMware vSphere network.
It has been 17 months since I deployed the Nexenta cluster for our VMware hosting platform at ipHouse. Unfortunately this post will not be positive.
I was in Las Vegas for VMworld 2011 this past week and what a busy week it was! 20,000+ people in attendance! I met many amazing people, saw quite a few new products, I enjoyed it 100%.
