The paper is available here: PDF

The goal of this paper is to present network design recommendations and best practices for integration of 1GbE and 10GbE iSCSI SANs running Dell™ EqualLogic™ storage arrays. Our test environment included:
  • Dell PowerConnect 8024F 10Gb and 6248 1Gb Ethernet switches
  • Dell EqualLogic 10Gb and 1Gb SANs.

We want your feedback! Please use the comment thread on this page to let us know what you think of this paper. How did it help you design and deploy a mixed speed EqualLogic SAN infrastructure?
