Asked many questions and had a few answers (thanks to elacunza).
But a single thread seems to be a no-go. I'm gonna slip it
Hardware relative questions :
I've got different offers from my reseller. Among many solutions, i've
got two in the last race :
1. A pair of Dell MD1200 (Disk enclosure with 12 SAS disks in a
stripped mirror) connected with SAS cables to each of the blades
(M620) in a M1000E enclosure.
- - Max IOPS
- - Each storage is local for proxmox's point of view (Am i wrong ??)
- -Difficult to scale : Up to three blades, it could be easy but after 4
ou 5 blades, there won't be enough ports on the SAS disk enclosure.
2.The same pair of MD1200 connected to a blade, acting as a ZFS-SAN
for the other blades and exporting (NFS or iSCSI) the storage content
in an external 10 Gbe connection.
- - Easy to scale
- - Euh...ZFS ;-)
- - More complicated
- - Less IOPS due to the 10Gbe link
- - More expensive (1 10GBE/blade+1 for the SAN+1 10GBE switch)
Yes, i'm aware of the SPOF made of the SAN or the enclosure, but i can
live with it and have no budget to double this.
What are your opinions toward one or the other of those solutions ?
PS : Could be an HP material instead of a Dell one.
