Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I cannot speak for the IBM, but I have extensive experience with the EVA-3000 and EVA-5000. Both are excellent SAN storage devices. The EVA is a very mature platform – originally designed by DEC. The IBM product is very new.

You also posted previously about weather to use NAS or SAN. I have specific experience with Network Appliance NAS devices running Oracle. I believe that Oracle actually uses Dell servers and NetApp storage for some of their hosted servers. It works very well.

    I can not compare these Devices. Or give you Details about the Road Map In Jan. we setup a DS 4300 currently with 13GB Notes Databases. Mid of this year we will attach a second Server with a Sybase SQL Database to this System. We could make use of a Package Price that was to cheap to ignore. The system runs without any problem. Only Problem was to find Raid 10 creation in System Management Software. It was so easy and obvious that we did not see it. ;-) System Performance for real Database usage has to be proofed end of this Year.

    The IBM DS4xxx are basically a new name for the FastT product line. I am currently running a 400+GB (over 800GB allocated, not sure what the actual usage is today) Oracle DB on an IBM 2105-800 which would be comparable to the new DS6xxx series. Looking at the requirements of your oracle database and what other hardware and management software you have on site should help with your decision.
