I need help and advice how to design my volumes to fit the need - good performance for sql type application, no lack of performance for file servers, remote copy or replication to dr site for protection for 90% data.
my situation - site A ( production ) 1. we have 5 esx, 2 P4000 lefthand in each site. 2. we have 2-3 sql server on each esx, around 5 web and 1 file servers. ( this could be rearranged ). total around 30 to 40 virtual servers, total used storage would be around 10TB. 3. there will be some servers where the data protection could be not necessary and no need remote site protection.
site B ( 90% for dr purpose ) - have 5 esx, 2 P4000 lefthand, both sites are linked using a dedicated 1 gig pipe, NOT expecting to have any site to site redundancy or recovery for now, but having a DR solution using remote copy or kind of replication is mandatory.
Need your help to find the best solution for the above situation - thank you all.
