Recomend me a cheap NAS as an ISCSI target
I need accelerate a virtualisation project that we have been looking at for some time.
I had been planning to put in a pair of VMhosts with some local storage to move print services etc off some of our older servers.
It appears however that our intranet server may require upgrading sooner than I had planned.
Therefore I now need to look for some storage.
I am considering something along the lines of a Netgear ReadyNAS 2100 or Qsnap unit.
Looking for CIFS/ISCSI support and min 1Tb storage, solution needs to be off the shelf rather than home build. Netgear’s 5 Year warranty looks good.
What would be people’s recommendations?
I have in mind a vmware esxi instance of 2008R2 with the inetpub folder on a iscsi target.
