Just agreed with management to implement SAN for the school. Looking for quotes from different companies. We already have 2 terabytes of data on 12 servers which are very old and need changing desperately.
Any advice related to SAN and spec of servers ( rack mountable only) will help
also if anybody has SAN from RM please give me the feedback.

have a look at the Dell MD3000 (iSCSI) SAN, alternatlivly look at IBMs DS3300 (iSCSI) or DS3400 (FC) SANS. All the above can take a mix of SAS/SATA for speed/storage.
All can take 3 extra expansion shelves for increased storage and all based around LSI storage controller - so look and feel almost identical.
As for servers - Dell PowerEdge 2950 with any mix of RAM/CPU and the IBM equivalent is 3650x
Depends how much space you want in SAN and mix of hard disks (expensive bit) and how 'beefy' you want to make the servers.
Did you have a budget in mind?
