There are several aspects that I consider important when evaluating SAN. The first is its reliability which speaks to how it was engineered, ensuring that's it's easy to integrate into existing infrastructure. Secondly is ease of management, it must be gui based and not require a PhD to administer. The performance must be acceptable and be flexible to allow both spinners as well as flash storage. Lastly is the cost must be competitive as we are not going to pay exorbitant price.

Reliability should be the first. Performance then cost.

Web (or Desktop) GUI based administration, segmentable storage options, scalability (i.e.,/stackable), iSCSI and Fibre connectivity, SAS drives versus SATA, with custom hot spare configuration options. And a good SLA.

it must be adaptable to different platforms. with emphasis on IOPS capacity and throughput, while being easy for an admn, and not break the IT budget..
