In terms of performance, we've got a 5000 series Equalogic and NetApp 2050. The NetApp was vastly more expensive, however the Equalogic beats the NetApp hands down for iSCSI performance. The drawback of the Equalogic over the NetApp is that any expansion requires a whole new chassis/controller - which from James' email probably isn't a problem.

>>> Hey all sorry for the slightly off topic question, but I’m after some recommendations for a new 10gbit iSCSI SAN which supports which support active sync across multiply enclosures via fibre (So each enclosure can be stored in different physical locations)
>>> I’m looking only for a 2RU to 3RU unit with about 4tb to 10tb of RAID 10 SAS storage.
>>> Needs to support all the standard features ie two controllers / power supplies per enclosure and have enterprise 24/7 local support and lots of iSCSI targets etc.
>>> Any recommendations (specific models / make ) would be great ! (Happy for a storage rep to reach to me out off list)
>>> Kindest Regards
