New Storage Architecture

My previous build is ok, but the performance has been awful. I can't get more than ~10MB/s write speed over the network on a 2gb/s link.

I decided then to separate the hypervisor function from the storage function. The hypervisor will probably move to KVM, on the existing hardware. For storage, I decided to buy rather than build. I could have built a FreeNAS storage server, but by buying the Synology DS1511+, I am getting great RAID management software and a compact hot-swappable chassis.

On the new setup I should be able to write >150MB/s. Sweet.
