SAN Real World Stress Testing

Good afternoon,

Our school is working on a homebrewed Unix based SAN and we were looking for some good ways to stress test it. Exchange 2010, SQL 2008, IIS, as well as DPM backups will be stored on this SAN and it will be accessed through iSCSI connections. We would like to put it through a similar workload and stress the hardware as much as possible in order to ensure reliability in a production environment. Does anyone have suggestions on any software that may help us accomplish this? Thank you.
