Re: Bring on the Storinator!
It is ~$7k sans drives. The drives are the other half of the $14K. Some assembly required - which is how enterprise SANs come normally anyway.
All the VSAN virtual appliances offer network striping and redundancy features. That is kind of the point after all. A 3-node site-redundant SAN can be had for under $50K.
HP's VSA will work with this, as will various open source solutions, which have specialist consultants offering support levels all the way up to "permanent onsite engineer".
