$WORK needs a SAN/Storage contractor in Chicago area

$work has finally decided to try and add a contractor to our Storage team in
Chicago area.
$work uses TekSystems as the contracting solution.
If you know
of anyone who is a bona-fide Storage person in the Chicago area looking etc -
have them contact this guy at TekSystems.

Work will be physically in the Chicago area - must
speak EMC - SRDF (and/or STAR), SMC, symaccess, symcli, Symmetrix/VMAX,
Clariion/VNX, Navisphere, Cisco Fabric Manager, NetBackup, shell & perl
scripts.

No - I don't know what it pays .....
It's a year contract I've been
told .....

regards
steve

EOSL

We have been informed that the EOSL (End of Service Life?) for our E450 will
be 12/31/2012 and the EOSL for our Storedge A1000 will be 9/30/2012.  We would
like to continue to use these devices for 2-3 more years before we retire
them.  We are running an old ERP system on Solaris 7.1 and Oracle 8i and we'll
be upgraded to our parent companies system sometime in the 2-3 year time
frame.  Because of constraints from the ERP system we can't upgrade either
Solaris or Oracle.

What other options besides self support would we have to keep these boxes
running?  One thing of particular concern is the cache battery in the A1000
which expires every 2 years.  When it does the performance goes to hell.

Thanks, Dave

Re: EOSL

You can purchase software support from Oracle (and should do this to get
the patch bundles and security patches).
There are other vendors that can supply parts.  Mr. Bill has these listed.
 (We use Acclinet [sp?] and they are okay--they like to test and talk on
the phone.)

I have talked to Anysystem.com about hardware support, and was pretty 
comfortable with their plan. If they support older hardware (and I think 
they do), that may be a decent option.
