comment NAS recommendation for Xenserver
The problem here is the disks that you have. Using two disks in mirror will not give additional performance. For a VM workload you'll need a huge stripe of mirrors, ZFS is great with caching, but if your data is not "cacheable" it will give you the disk performance. Another thing to keep in mind is that XenServer needs time to coalesce the snapshots that you create. So the storage subsystem must be fast enough to handle all the activity. What you need now is to fill the requirements, like: what's the IOPS needed? Do you really need those snapshots? Can it work another way?

Spock, are you willing to buy a machine just to run FreeNAS? I've a production XenServer pool with more than 50 VM's running on a single iSCSI FreeNAS storage.

Actually we aren't using DAGs. So the failover question isn't really an issue. And I already have Windows Server 2012 with Exchange Server 2013 CU9 running. I just want an R2 Upgrade.

The necessary time to do this. We have 900GB of user data in ten different mailbox databases.

52TB in a single RAID6 volume? I hope you never need to rebuild your RAID.
