HP DL320 G5 Win2003 Enterprise Server Cluster Storage Needed!

Hello.

I have 2 HP DL320 G5's running Win2003 Enterprise.

My goal is to cluster these two servers for file and print. To do this one of the technical requirements is SHARED STORAGE that is either: SCSI, or Fibre connected to the servers via a Host Bus Adapter installed in each server.

My question is this: What HP storage device(s) will allow me to complete my configuration and satisfy the technical requirements?

This is the final step for me and an answer from HP, or someone with practical experience with Microsoft Cluster Services.

Please give me the scoop...we do not need a Cadillac, the Chevy will do. Thanks.

Look at the MSA product line.

Given the low end servers and your statements about what you don't need, I would suggest looking at the iSCSI line as cheaper than SCSI or fibre.

Hello,

take a look at the MSA500 G2, a scsi-based storage for up to four nodes. With an additional HA-Kit you can upgrade it with redundand controllers, second HBA in each server etc. Please remember that the disks are additional.
