Implementing ePDM on EqualLogic SAN

I know that SolidWorks Enterprise PDM is not officially supported running on SAN storage, but does anyone have any expereince of doing so without any problems?


After a couple of years of delaying, I have finally been charged with rolling out ePDM and I am looking to install ePDM 2012 in a VMware vSphere VM, which will be running on a EqualLogic iSCSI SAN.


We will be migrating from our existing Unigraphics NX4/NX6 and Teamcenter 2007 environment. The initial ePDM database will store approximately 85,000 objects from the Unigraphics NX and Teamcenter environment, which currently totals approximately 120 GB. It will be accessed by a maximum of 20 users.


Any advice on the SAN and your experiences of server requirements or any other 'gotchas' gratefully received.
