Measuring IOPS of VMs per LUN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please can you help us on measuring the required IOPS:-

    We have 70 servers will be distributed to 4 servers each with 4 physical processor and 128 GB RAM, and we want to determine the required IOPS for the SAN storage in order to choose whcih SAN storage moduel we will purchase, we use only IBM servers and SAN storage.

    From the MAP Tools , the total IOPS for all of 70 servers is 1552.

    How can we calculate the required IOPS for SAN, even if it is RAID 5 OR RAID 6, and determine the SAN model from IBM,
