I need help with a production system that I would like to design and roll
out a my job. I was thinking about buy two server with 16 each and 8
processor and have both server connect to two dell 2850 server with raid 6 and 3x 300 ultra 320 hard drives. Both dell 2850¹s that are being used a
nas server will be connected to the two new server through 1gigabit
Ethernet. I wonder if this a bad Idea?

Hi Christopher,

the setup you talk about is more or less the same I'm using. I've been using it in a production environment for about a year now without a single problem. Here's my setup:

12 Dell 1950 Servers with 8 Cores and 4 to 16 Gb (depending on the server) 4 Dell 2950 Servers with 5 450Gb disks on RAID 5 acting as a SAN via iscsi (2TB aprox each).

The SAN servers are paired and replicated using drbd.

As said no problems running xen 3.1 on Ubuntu and Debian DomU, and running Debian and CentOS as domU.

All network connections are 1 Gb. I have about 30~40 domU.

Hope it helps,
