Looking to upgrade my current setup and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
-R710 2-X5670 and 48 Gig ram FreeNAS
3 4TB hard drives
-lenovo sa120 connected via SAS9200-8E
-R620 2-E5-2620 160Gig ram ESXI
Budget for equipment $400 (the storage is not included in this)
I am looking for a way to expand my storage. I need something that is kinda quiet (wife approval) and the lower the power usage the better.
Was looking at NETAPP DS4243 or NetApp DS4246 with 9202-16e or 9206-16e and remove the R710 and use the ESXI pass thru and upgrade the CPU’s.
Do a new server build with supermicro 4U BPN-SAS2-846EL1
Something else totally different.
