Does anyone have any experience with an EMC VNX unit connected to Apple Servers? If so, have you run into any major issues? We are looking into purchasing this to replace 4 Promise RAIDs.


Thank you all!

    Wondering if you went with the VNX? I have a 5300 that I'm about to migrate all of my video storage to from an infotrend.

    I've migrated about 22TB of Data to the VNX successfully. It was pretty painless other than the increased complexity of the FC switch and VNX. We went from the infortrend attached to a small qlogic 1400 to the VNX 5300 doing block and file attached to a redundant brocade FC setup.

    I'm not attaching to OS X servers though (I have Lion clients running SanMP). I imagine it would work just as well.
