I can recommend the Equallogic PS devices (
http://www.equallogic.com/products/). We've had one in service in or dev/qe
lab for over a year. It has been rock solid. And it's management interface
is very easy. I can't comment too much on their support because we haven't
really needed it. The couple of times we've called with questions they have
answered them quickly and the answers were correct and/or helpful.  I
believe they have a unit that will fit your budget.

Good Luck!
