We have an HP MSA 500 as a storage array connected to windows fileserver, the VCM, and the Oracle Database server via SCSI. The VCM is also connected to the fileserver and the database via a gigabit ethernet connection. A cluster of Java application servers sit connected to the VCM and fileserver. In front of the App Servers are the Windows 2003 web servers. We have the ability to add more web or application servers as needed to increase performance. The network these servers is on is gigabit and they are protected from the Internet by a Cisco firewall.
