Intel E10G42BTDA Server Adapter X520-DA2 10Gbps PCI Express 2.0 x8 2 x SFP+
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent for Nexenta + ESXi 07/12/2012

This review is from: Intel E10G42BTDA Server Adapter X520-DA2 10Gbps PCI Express 2.0 x8 2 x SFP+

Pros: Extremely pleased with these, but I did my homework before purchasing. They compose a VMware vSphere 5 storage network.

2x Dell 8024F switches
5x Dell R710s with one of these cards in each server (ESXi 5 hosts)
1x Dell c2100 Server running NFS off of Nexenta CE 3.1.3 with 2 of these cards in it (one PCI based as sold here and another that is a mezzanine card) for an aggregate 40Gbps throughput to/from the SAN.
tons of Cisco SFP-H10GB-CU3M/SFP-H10GB-CU1M cables used for connectivity.

These were chosen for compatibility/reliability as we planned to build our own SAN solution after pricing every storage vendor we could fathom. We ended up spending a fraction of the quotes we were offered and got more for our $.

Shipping as always was remarkably fast w/ NewEgg.

Cons: Cost? They can be had elsewhere for substantially less.

Other Thoughts: Do your homework and buy the right cables, etc for these and you won't regret it.

OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Using 2 of these as L2ARC in a Nexenta SAN 01/30/2012

This review is from: OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: So far so good. No worries. Using OCZ Denevas for the ZIL on the SAN. Had next day shipping to meet a deadline and NewEgg delivered as always.

Cons: None. Actually planning on building a SAN entirely of these bad boys running VMware linked clones and virtualized storage solutions for those linked clones in a cloud environment.

Other Thoughts: This is one of the few drives on the HCL for the QNAP TS-1079 Pro, but it's also functioning very well with extreme I/O workload Nexenta SANs.
