    I strongly recommend using a real hardware RAID controller instead of software RAID. You'll get much better performance, which is obviously what you're going for if you're choosing SSDs.

    We are also interested in VMWare ESX(i) 5.
    Will you be shortly certified for VMWare ESX(i) 5? That'd be great. Already have customers asking about it.

    Has anyone used DSS v6 with ESX(i) 5?

    Do you have an option to run the scheduled task until the volumes are both consistent and then stop? That would be just about as useful as async.

    I've had much better results with VPD 1 than with VPD 2 when it comes to ESX 4.x.

    Replying to myself:

    If you have one lying around, try it!

    Most of the time, those things work, and if they don't, just nag support to get it working. It's usually pretty easy.

    Good idea!

    The ability to add volumes without having to bring down your clients would be great, even if you are vulnerable for a short amount of time.

    I believe you can't go straight from 4023 to 4786. You need to update to (some of) the in-between versions, first. I'm not entirely sure, though.

    Block I/O is better. Fewer caching layers (I think), lower latency. In some circumstances, that means cached I/O can be a little slower, but if you have a fast back-end (a decent RAID card), it works...

    I never checked with 8Gbit, actually (we only had one 8Gbit-capable card, so no 8Gbit initiators). Just with 4Gbit. Also, keep in mind that 8Gbit doesn't have as long of a range as running at 4Gbit.
