Hi folks! So you want to implement VMware vSphere in your environment and you realize you need a SAN. What the heck do you buy? Storage has become quite affordable these days and there are a lot of options to choose from.

Well one of my favourite SANs is HP’s LeftHand P4000 series. Why you ask? Because you get a lot of bang for your buck. You get a great starter SAN for the price with iSCSI, dual controllers, thin provisioning, snapshots, remote copy and storage clustering.

Normally if you wanted to buy a SAN with all these features it would cost you an arm and a leg. The best part is that it’s from a reputable company like HP that stands behind their product. Other SANs can sometimes come in at a lower price point but then when you want to expand them and add storage, they hit you with expensive additions.

This SAN solution is a result of the HP acquisition of LeftHand. Give it a try! You can read more about it here.
