This is for my small business where we demonstrate and develop around Oracle E Business Suite (using applications and databases) and associated products. My primary needs are to ensure VMs stay up, move them around to ensure best use of resources, and back ups to be able to rapidly bring machines online that have crashed. I am currently running 3 x DL385 set up as a cluster, and an iSCSI attached Synology NAS. I also have a Thecus NAS NFS mounted I am thinking about using for backups - it can be ISCSI mounted too, if needed.
Am I also thinking about cost (my revenue is well under $1MM at this point). If I go with Veeam essentials, it looks like $2.5k or so for 6 sockets, or upgrading to vSphere Essentials Plus that gives vMotion and High Availability and Data Protection, but is closer to $5k.
As I mentioned, this is pretty new to me - I am migrating from VirtualBox to vSphere, and it's a whole different situation.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
