i am building a lab to have a Virtualised environment.
Currently, Opennebula would be installed to manage KVM guests and storage will be provided via NFS.
Opennebula will be installed on either ScientifiLinux/Debian (not sure yet)
due to the size of these files and since i am planning to use IO intensive applications (ETL/ELT, databases), i believe gigabit speed is a requiredment here.
as it is a virtualised environment, i will also be using VLAN to split different sectors of my lab network, such as public, storage, BI-PROJECT-A, BI-PROJECT-B, ...
i have looked into Cisco SG300-10 which seems to cover the lot; it is relatively cheap.
since i am no network expert, i would like to ask for your guidance, to see if i am looking for a product that would support my requirement, or maybe provide me with an alternative?
please let me know if i need to provide more information.
Many thanks for your time,
