I am needing another FC SAN for a small-mid AIX environment. We already have experience with DS series SANs in some of our other locations and have gotten comfortable with the hw and admin. The v3700 is being presented as a less expensive alternative, but not sure how much yet.
1. Is the hw and admin similar enough to be a non-issue? Or is admining and supporting another flavor of SAN just the ticket to confusing our folks.
2. Any significant performance or other differences that might become apparent. I can find nothing discussing this anywhere.
Thanks for any info.
