My Openfiler has landed
My openfiler based SAN/NAS from SCL arrived yesterday.
It's quite a beast of a machine curently has 8 750GB drives installed with space for another 4.
So around 5TB of storage.
I'm going to be using around 2TB for disk to disk backups replacing our current 1.5TB Buffalo NAS.
The other space will probably be used for VMWare images and possibly WDS ones as well.

Perhaps a review could be mailed to me on your experiences with it?

++ I'd be interested in a review / performance figures. Currently deciding on a backup setup here.

Good bit of kit you've got there Ben!

Software Raid version
Intel SSR212MC2BR storage server chassis
Intel Xeon 5410 Quad CPU
8x 750Gb Enterprise Seagate SATA II storage drives
2x 100Gb 2.5” boot drive
4Gb ECC FB DIMMS (2x 2Gb)
Dual Gigabit LAN
3 year warranty
Once I've had a play I will do some sort of review.
The iSCSI was simple to setup.

*bumps in the hope of some performance figures*

I'm sure there is a review on this floating around somewhere!

pete I haven't done any performance figures yet as I am waiting for network hardware to consolidate the network in the remote location for the OF.
There is a review that has been submitted for the newsletter.

@Plexer sorry to bring back an old thread but did you use OpenFiler in the end for your VMs?

Had a few issues with the hardware and it's currently being reconfigured with a hardware raid card and few other changes as well.
As I bought an intel storage chassis I bought the open-e dss software in the end for it.
