We have been using Dell Equallogic SANs for many years starting with the PS6100. Looking to purchase a new one. Vendors always say theirs is best. Can anyone recommend best performing SAN for the money? Need around 40TB.

Needs? Best performing SAN for the money. I know there are lots of options, including tiered storage. Currently using 1gig connectivity with iSCSI. Don't think it is worth upgrading our VMWare infrastructure to support 10gb.

There are a lot of good vendors out there. Of course its always a budget question. SDS (DataCore / Starwind etc.) are also good options if there is some in house competence. Some of the newer "Start-Ups" are of course also worth looking at, be sure to check if they have their support in order... If dealing with a new vendor be sure to do a decent POC and dont trust their marketing without actually testing.
