Upgrading EVA3000 to EVA4100

We have two 2C2D EVA3000 (active/passive) with Continouous access that were purchased a few years ago, but put were put into production only months ago. We are considering an upgrade to active/active (VCS 4.X) or moving to EVA4100. The second scenerio is obviously more complex and expensive, but should eventually payoff. My question is what hardware/software components need to be replaced or retained in moving to EVA4100? My concern is recabling. Having two sites with continous access should simplify the upgrade.

Re: Upgrading EVA3000 to EVA4100

Hi,

See the Q&A section here:

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/eva/qa.html#19

"...upgrading from an EVA3000 or EVA5000 requires the replacement of the controllers, loop switches and I/O modules and EMUs..."

So pretty much everything except the disk enclosures and disks.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob
