    or is the sim included in the firmware update?

    I'm trying to find out why it didn't make the list and see if there's any way it can be added.

    What would help me is a show of hands from you guys on here as to how many of you would buy a S7110 4TB if it was on matching grant.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    I am not 100% certain what the effect of the "matching grant" would be on price, but we are very pleased to hear that the 4TB version was coming out as we felt that the 2TB was going to be too small for us. The 4TB versionn at the right price will be a very difficult offer to refuse.

    Hi,

    Can i ask does the 4TB version uses SAS 15K or 10K disks? The problem is the capacity of the disks really because by the time you setup decent amoutn of raid protection i.e. raid 6 with DP or similar the 4TB is gone and will probably be down to 2.5 to 3Tb (usuable) at best.

    TIA,

    Ash.

    Only if the Nehalems have made it on too, seeing as they are available on the US matching grant already. Not seen the updated list yet though. No Nehalems, no Sun atm (it'll be Dells!)

    I too am a bit worried that 2tb per box is not going to be enough for the next 5 years and can make a good case for going for the 4tb one instead of the 2tb one. As long as it is not massiveley more expensive. Will be looking to buy through Cutter next week.

    Also Phil - while your on "matching grant hero" duties - if you could get an Ultra 24 put on to matching grant (dual or quad core, not to fussed really!) - I and I am sure others would be looking to buy lots of them too! Already going to be buying servers storage and monitors - so why not make it the whole range!

    Will be buying at least two servers - if as DMcCoy suggests the Nehalems can be put on MG - I can make a good environemental case for moving to them too.

    All I need now is to negotiate matching grant on hot dogs from the canteen and I will be one very happy bunny!

    I'll ask the question to see what we can get added to Matching Grant.

    Butuz,

    Thanks for the posting. I'll see what can be added to the Matching Grant list - mind you, I'm on the storage side of the business... those servers are just bits of tin really

    Cheers,

    Phil

    the up and coming S7110 4TB will use the 300GB SAS 10k drives. This will give you roughly 4TB RAW and then RAID down to lower capacities once you have decided on your RAID level. Remember when you're configuring your S7000 (and simulator) you determine what combination of Availability, Capacity and Performance suits your needs and click on the commit button to configure once you have decided. Easy or what?

    Cheers,

    Phil

    In terms of commercials on the S7000 I'm probably not the expert (Andy is good on that) but I reckon the matching grant would bring the price difference down from £9.9k to not much more than the £4.3k that the 2TB one is pitched at. The matching grant prices are based on list price as far as I am aware though.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    As discussed through other channels, sufficient arm-twisting and pleading might get me 4TB instead of the 2TB. So you can include me as a "would probably purchase the 4TB if it gets included in matching grant".

    We would be very interested I'm checking the budget and should be able to proceed.

    We will be using it connected to 2 Sun X4150 servers and using XenServer 5, we know that Xenserver works with the current 2Tb model will the 4Tb model be identical other than the amount of storage? Our Xen supplier says it can be sensetive to change.

    Thanks.
