Re: [Linux-cluster] EMC vs HP EVA

Hi All, 

First thanks for your answers, 

My budget for buying the share storage is about 10.000 EUR

With this in mind, I want something good enough to make a goog cluster. 

One of the things I want with this is get knowledge about the products used in big implementations. This is the reason I´m thinking on EMC or EVA, ( I don´t know with my budget I can afford this or I´m being a litle ingenious)

by the way anybody has told wich of this  family of products is best. (or if there is something better. I have also seen Dell equallogic)

That is par for the course, they all come in platinum sleds whether you
get EMC, HP, IBM etc.

Last time I looked list price for a 1TB SATA drive for an IBM DS5000 was
something like 2000 USD.
