Aren't you going to get into some support issues if you stray to far from
what IBM says they support.

Does anyone know of any SAN's that are compatible with IBM i other than
from EMC or IBM themselves? It seems we only have two vendor choices on
this front whereas our Windows boxes has an incredibly larger vendor
selection.

I've looked at Xiotech, NetApp, Equilogic (dell), Compellent (dell), and
HP and none of those vendors seem to support the iSeries. They all have
SAN's that work with Unix/Windows/x86 boxes but not the iSeries.
Additionally cost is a factor, for the price of TWO 8TB san's from the
manufacturers that do NOT have iSeries support we cannot even get ONE from
EMC or IBM.

Kinda disappointing so far, so I'm hoping someone can tell me of an
economical SAN that is compatible with the IBM i that have all the bells
and whistles that we are use to from the big guys in the x86 world
(geolocated site failover, blocklevel replication and restore, automatic
management of files by moving frequently access to faster drives and lower
access data to slow drives, etc).
