Hardware selection

Dear All,

 

I am designing a c class blade system for our new DC. My requirement is as below:

 

- high performance i/o needed for DB (shared storage)

- high performance blade for DB with h/w redeundancy

- Mid performance blade for application with h/w redundancy

- low performance storage for archiving

- expansion slots for future requirements of DB and App.

- exteranl connectivity to go out on internet and internal network.

 

I need your help to understand following:

 

- what is the ideal design for the solution I need?

- do I need any switch module for f/c or ethernet based network connectivity?

- is it good idea to use the same c class blade system for high performance i/o need to store DB?

 

Thank you all in advance.

Re: Hardware selection

- try to stay away from virtual connect if you can, it gives some pros for less cabling but it could cause more problem than it solves.

- do I need any switch module for f/c or ethernet based network connectivity? YES, probably for both if you will have FC storage.

- is it good idea to use the same c class blade system for high performance i/o need to store DB? -- Don't you need high IO for db? Same as what?
