Storage selection for Vmware storage solution with less knowledge about Storage Hardware


We need a medium size solution for Vmware. The plan is to run around 60 machines on 3 Dell servers and we dont need SSD or Flash based disk as per requirement but may be we just add 1TB of SSD for future need. The only things is to have redundancy like in terms of Dual controller, 2 10G interfaces, Dual CPU so that it will not effect in case a single module goes down.

Now Dell has difference series of storage like SC, ME and I guess its the same with HP. How to understand these different series and the best way to select a storage based on cost and performance.
