I am evaluating storage solution for my office application running on MS SQL/Oracle/Exchange 2003 etc. As usual, the only two big players in the market are HP & IBM.
IBM proposed N5200/N3700 to HP EVA4000. As far as I understand, the N5200/N3700 is a IPSAN compare to EVA4000 of FC SAN. Moving forward, N3700/N5200 with iSCSI will cut my operation cost due to experts available on TCP/IP versus specialized expert for FC. As I am also looking at Archiving - might be Symantec Enterprise Vault, N3700 could not scale to have SATA disks once I am with FC disks.
I need some advise on which would be the best platform for my environment.
Thanks in advanced
