Experiences in Virtualization

MPR – Week 1 – Thursday

Posted by martijnl on October 5, 2006

Today we welcomed a new inhabitant of our serverroom:

Clariion rack Clariion disks and cages

Yes, the Clariion CX3-40 has arrived. At the moment it’s just the rack and controllers. The rest is still in the boxes in the second photo. That will be installed by EMC in the coming week (appointment not yet made).

One surprise was the fact that this cage comes with two power connectors where we currently only have room for one extra cage on our APC Symmetra. The APC racks we use only have one connector but I could have known that this cage used split power circuits.

Also the servers have been mounted and VC and ESX has been installed. Now all we have to do is point the ESX servers to the correct storage and move the first machines over from our VI3 test environment.
