Hello Folks,
Rather a curious question, but wanted to find out if anyone has sized number of HBAs needed for a server (Unix) based on IOPS. 

We all know that a 2Gb HBA can theoritically deliver 200 MBytes/sec of data transfers, but was curious to find out if say an application running on a server is sized for 2000 IOPS, how do we size number of HBAs needed to fulfill this requirement ?
