Just curious, but what do you mean by "performing badly in terms of availability (but not throughput)"? Do you mean that the database is very fast but crashes a lot? You mentioned an active-passive cluster - is it failing over? If so, exactly how often?
Usually "high-availability" involves more than just the storage system. Why are you looking for a new storage system? What do you expect from the new storage system that your current system is lacking? (BTW, what is your current storage system?)
Just a few questions to get the gears turning, if you have a few moments. :) Just trying to understand what you're looking for!
