I have a requirement to simulate an Enterprise level network as far as possible, with two ESXi5 Hosts & on those I want to install all OS like Linux(CentOS, Debian), UNIX(Solaris, FreeBSD) & Windows(server 2003, server2008), integrating all those. And on those OS i want to implement all servers & applications as real time environment, like Mail server, FTP server, web server, LDAP server, RADIUS server, DHCP, DNS, AD server, Exchange server, MySQL, SAP etc. I want to make it heterogeneous network. And i want to implement all the functionality as far as possible like on ESXi5(FT, Migration, Load Balancing, Clustering, DirectPath I/O etc), on Linux(RADIUS, LDAP, Mail, web, FTP, DNS, etc), on Windows(AD, Exchange, etc) with all server replications. And it should be accessable to the public world.
So which storage solution should i go for?
I need the cheapest one.
What are all the basic & cheap models you have can onyone tell me?
You are probably looking at the VNXe or VNX line, which is a huge range of options.
Have you contacted a local partner for help? They are usually pretty great at sussing out what you need...
