Not sure this is the right spot for this, but at work, we are migrating our lab ESXi hosts from local storage to an IP-SAN (finally) and I want to repurpose their local storage to cold storage for things like lab machine backups, customer database backups, etc. Is it possible to set up a storage cluster so I can provide just one IP/Hostname and have it directed to the correct storage array based on configuration? I.e. not have to worry about writing the data to the wrong location just because I chose the incorrect VM? I will need a combination of CIFS and iSCSI presentation.
