Right now people are debating the merits of using fibre channel, iscsi or NFS for the virtual infrastructure media. With Nseries, you can do all three all from the same hardware with out adding on another product. While this question usually comes down to a cost issue, I am seeing more and more clients going to a NFS infrastructure for simplicity.
Site Recovery Manager has made admin’s lives easier by automating some of the things they would have to do during a DR test or recovery. If you have VMWare in your data center and you haven’t looked SRM yet, you need to.
Here is a great write up on how to setup a N series simulator and run some tests on the SRM functionality over NFS. Big thanks to Cormac Hogan for putting this together.
