I don't claim to be a guru, but I think an EVA8000/8100 is simply overkill for two disk drive enclosures with 28 disk drives.

Try to sell your management on ease of use and the flexibility won through virtualization. Those 'good looking graphs' have little or nothing to do with real-world environments.
