[PVE-User] SAN recommendation.

Nexenta CE may only be used for testing, not allowed for production.

If you go for a cheap but reliable SAN, look after Promise VessRAID machines. 

If you don’t want to spend any money, have a look at freenas which is pretty nice, full featured and uses ZFS in the back.

Ceph is probably nice, but overkill for SMB. I am talking about the case, that something fails and you have to fix a complex system instead of using another (fallback) NFS or iSCSI device.

Betreff: [PVE-User] SAN recommendation.

Need any experience suggestion. 
We want a SMB SAN storage and a bit convenient in price. with HA and Multipathing for iSCSI
do you guys think openfiler could be a good option for production or it is just good for testing?
