MSA P2000 G3 storage & raid optimizations

Hi Community!!!

We have:

1) Storage side - MSA P2000 G3 FC/iSCSI + P2700 enclouser

HDD - MSA P2000 have 24 x 300GB SAS 10K

               P2700 have 25 x 300GB SAS 10K

   Total HDD - 49

2) Servers -  HP Proliant 360 G7/RAM 96GB/with 2FC 8G adapters x 2 (two)

3) Vmware vSphere 4.1 Essential Plius

So, the funnest part is ... How to make the optimal vdisk config for the high performance and redundant (because of aditional enclouser).


Best practice wrote about redundancy - .... to stripe virtual disks across shelf enclosures to enable data integrity in the event of an enclosure failure, but nothing about performance in this case.


So, any advices, comments or questions are welcome.
