BE2012 connecting to SAN via vray
I've got an EMC VNX SAN, Cisco Nexus core and an IBM 3650 dedicated server for BE2012 with all roles installed. I've got a Dell PVT4000 with 2 x LTO4 drives directly attached via SAS. The 3650 has 9Tb internal storage which is going to be for dedupe and a small amount of D2D.
The server is connected to the Nexus via FCoE and the SAN is conencted to the Nexus via FC. The network is administered by a 3rd party.
We're using VMware 5.0, a 4 host cluster in location A and a 2 host cluster in location B. We have a vCentre server at each location. At the moment I've only done tests using location A.
I'm after some advise on how best to configure the network to get the most out of it. At present when I perform a backup it appears to transfer via the vCentre server and the transfer speeds are slow, even if backing up to the local disk on the BE server. The BE server is dual FCoE teamed and my network admin has apparently coinfigured the Nexus correctly. I have configured a vlan for normal network access to our server vlan and that works fine.
This is the first time I've done this so feel free to keep it real basic :) and we'll move up from there.
Thank you in advance,
