Re: Best Practice - Volume Size - vmware esxi 4.1 free

Three is min, 4x would be better.  Best still would be to get the stacking cable so you can leverage the 10GbE.  But with a single array not as critical.  If you expand arrays and servers that's something to consider.

Sounds like you're off to a GREAT start!!

I think you're REALLY going to enjoy SANHQ.  The latest version, 2.2, has a "Live information" feature so you can monitor a volume or member in real time.  Plus there are some great reports and even a RAID evaluation tool that will show you based on past loads what different RAID types would do in your environment.
