I have the following hardware:
- Fujitsu BX600 S3 Chassis
- 10 x BX620 S4 Blade Servers
- QNAP TS-EC1279U-RP
- APC Symmetra RM 6kVA 6000VA SYH2K6RMI
- HP PROCURVE 2510G (J9280A)
What I would like to do:
- Use the above for VMWARE
- Partial rendering Video Farm
- Developing software
- Lots of testing and practicing
The TS-EC1279U-RP has 4 x 1GBIT connection which can be trucked all together. I can install a 10GBIT network card and I would like to connect this to the BX600 for maximum throughput. The Gbic part number is FTLF8524P2BNV. I have 24 of these, please have a look at [Click Here] for the BX600 Specs, what I have! Everything is listed here. What is the best way to connect the QNAP TS-EC1279U-RP to the BX600. (I have been suggested (2 GBIT ports for iSCSI and the other 2 for normal traffic, seperate the traffice the with switch).
With the TS-EC1279U-RP. What is the best recommended RAID level that I should use? I have 12 x 3TB HDD's. (I have been suggested RAID 5, but I am not sure about that! I think at least RAID 6)
Please ask me for any information that I might have missed.
