I received information this morning that we should be able to get a Pure System 1st quarter on 2014. I will need to work with our BP on the configurations. I do have a couple of questions. I will be planning to upgrade from V6R1 to V7R1 before the migration. We will keep the HMC.
1 – We require three partitions for the IBM i. One partition is for production. One partition is for development. One partition for a sandbox/Disaster Recovery testing/HA. I will want to share memory and CPU resources. Should we continue with three separate standalone partitions? Would it be better to have two partitions and the third hosted by the development partition? Production will be standalone.
2 – Should we use SSD internally or use our SAN for all of the partitions or a combination of the two?
Any suggestions, comments or feedback is appreciated.
