Archived data sets can be suspended or resumed as desired or destroyed if no longer needed. Dedicated archive capacity allows the administrator to preserve historical data up to 7-10 years (average competitor is 24 hours) (NEED VALIDATION) Most comprehensive self healing storage system Sun's Fault Management Architecture (FMA) automatically and silently detects and diagnoses the underlying problem, with an extensible set of agents automatically responding by taking the faulty component offline. Easy-to-understand diagnostic messages link to articles in Sun's knowledge base that clearly guide administrators through corrective tasks that require human intervention. Includes automatic data integrity checking & correction with block level checksums. When a corrupt block is identified, ZFS automatically repairs it with another copy, providing for self-healing capabilities at the block level. The Fault Management tools and architecture enable open storage developers to create self-healing content for software and hardware failures, all with a unified, simple view for administrators and system management software. (Keep or move to community section) Rapidly diagnose, trouble shoot and resolve issues before they impact your business Real time visibility from CPU to user helps to ensure performance and health Drill down analytics quickly narrow the focus to the most likely troubled areas (network bytes/sec, NFS ops/sec, disc ops/sec, CPU utilization). Easy to read dashboard summarizes the status of the appliance software and hardware and displays status for the following areas: disk usage, main memory usage, appliances services (NFS, CIFS, http, etc.), hardware, activities statistics, and recent appliance alerts.
  • Easy to scale your storage and obtain optimal performance Leading the industry with Hybrid Storage Pools that dramatically reduce storage I/O bottlenecks requiring no administrator intervention. ZFS was designed to automatically recognize different I/O patterns and optimize the placement of data to maximize performance and utilization of disk space. By combining high performance storage such as Solid State Disks (SSD) with other storage media-- usually hard disk drives (HDDs)-- in the same system, a Hybrid Storage Pool is automatically created without requiring intervention from the administrator. Leveraging key OpenSolaris features such as ZFS, the appliance optimizes the use of all available tiers of storage - DRAM, read optimized storage (read cache, SSD), write optimized storage (write cache, SSD), and a general storage tier (SATA HDDs). Protect your investment in training and custom scripting as you scale your hardware environment The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems' software stack is hardware agnostic, making skills sets and scripting portable. Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems include a comprehensive data services suite at no additional cost. Mirroring, remote replication snapshots and data compression are included.
  • High Performance Read & Write Cache Pool ZFS combines main memory and SSDs for read caching Adaptive Replacement Cache (ARC) Linear pattern multi-stream detection Second-level ARC (L2ARC) for NAND Flash ZFS Intent Log pool ZFS is a transactional file system Intent Log stores small transactions without doing the transaction ZFS can use a separate intent log device (slog) Typically NVRAM or dedicated SDD pool used High Capacity Pool The ZFS pool manager automatically stripes across any number of high capacity HDDs ZFS IO-scheduler bundles disk IO to optimize arm movement and sector allocation Shipping now in OpenSolaris
  • Unlike common Flash, enterprise SSDs have a controller that pools the individual FLASH chips and virtualized the address space so it looks like a hard disk. The controller also performs wear leveling, CRC and bad block mapping for data integrity and high reliability. Just like disk controllers, SSD controllers also provide host interfaces. We (Sun) also reserve an additional 25% of the capacity for hot sparing and write shifting as to provide the highest level of reliability, writeability and longevity.
  • Gain up to a 90% (NEED VALIDATION) cost savings over traditional storage solutions while realizing significant space, power and cooling efficiencies with the Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System-- up to X% lower price and 2X the performance of any system in its class. Limited software license fees: Rich built in software features are included when you purchase a Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System Provides the highest efficiencies at the best capacity/square foot in its class with XX% less power consumed Reduce costly operational down time by X% Reduce break-fix calls by 75%, and enjoy a single-point-of-contact (SPOC) for support with Sun Services Uses general purpose storage and compute components and open source software
  • This is how the ISV sees the 1.0 version of appliance view
  • Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems bring unprecedented levels of simplicity and observability to a virtualized infrastructure. Sun and VMware offer the best combination to deliver Windows server consolidation through virtualization. Simplicity: Increase overall data-center efficiency by reducing time to provision virtual server – storage environments; DTrace ppervasive observability With DTrace Analytics, drill down to Virtual Machine (VM) level to determine overall performance while determining optimal VM placement With NFS, significantly reduce time to deploy & manage storage in virtual environment (unlike other data protocols like FC) Speed/Scale: Dramatically reduce time to create VMs for each server instance (HSP, ZFS snap/clones) Savings: Increase hard dollar savings by at least 50% Increase VM space efficiency savings (Compression, ZFS snap/clones) No additional licenses (NFS, iSCSI, Compression, Replication, Snapshots/Clones)
  • Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems bring unprecedented levels of performance and simplicity to a Windows, Linux, UNIX or mixed file sharing environments. Simplicity : Create shares and access user files simultaneously and across multiple operating systems (Windows, Unix, Mac O/S, Linux); optimize and troubleshoot peak share access performance (user logins) by 50% Transparent & seamless file sharing across protocols (CIFS/NFS); In mixed Windows and UNIX environments, it is not necessary to replicate files to allow concurrent access; only a single instance of the file is needed, even in a mixed network environment (i.e. we can share files across NFS and CIFS without user access permission issues) Speed/Scale: Add a large number of users and shares with minimal impact to performance and significantly reduce time for remote file access & collaboration, especially frequently accessed files (home directories, PowerPoint) Savings: Increase hard-dollar savings by at least 50% with no additional licenses (CIFS, NFS, Data services) and no expensive 15K drives
  • Analysts have identified a number of fundamental shifts in the industry. Most prominent is the rise of the open source community. Also critical is the concept of open standards. If open source is freedom for developers, open standards is freedom for customers. But there's a larger shift underway around how applications are developed and deployed – with the web as a platform.
  • One of the factors that differentiates Sun is the fact that we have a commitment to open and standards- based technology. Our open systems approach gives you the flexibility and the freedom to choose the best systems for your business and IT infrastructure. Sun systems are open in design – running on Solaris, Linux and Windows – and have a common architecture across the entire portfolio so customers can easily deploy Sun systems into their current IT infrastructure with minimal overhead and down time to your business. Such wide interoperability and seamless integration offers businesses the opportunity to do more with less.
  • .. Sun's openstorage approach delivers storage systems that are enterprise-class quality, reliable, with the highest data integrity in the industry. Quality: Sun's open source software and storage systems offer award-winning quality. In fact, Solaris ZFS and the Sun Fire x4500 (Thumper) hybrid storage server won InfoWorld 2008 Technology of the Year awards. Reliability: Commercial distributions of Sun open source software have gone through rigorous testing and certification. For example, Solaris ZFS offers “19 nines” data integrity while predictive self healing offers automatic system diagnosis, reducing downtime 32-52%. Better Data Integrity: Solaris is the only known OS designed to provide end-to-end check summing for all data. Solaris ZFS constantly reads and checks data to help ensure it is correct, and if it detects an error in a mirrored pool, the technology can automatically repair the corrupt data. This relentless vigilance on behalf of availability protects against costly and time-consuming data loss (even previously undetectable silent data corruption). Available: Solaris protects businesses from planned and unplanned outages that can cost millions.1 Unlike HP-UX, Red Hat Linux, and Microsoft Windows, Solaris has predictive self healing, the capability to monitor historical data to predict faults and take proactive preventive action to avoid future failures. Unlike the competition, scaling Sun's open storage is not just about adding capacity, it's about easily and dynamically scaling your infrastructure to meet your changing business needs. Massive Scale: Sun builds to scale as you grow. Solaris is the only OS to deliver both vertical and horizontal multi-platform scalability with the same code base. Solaris ZFS is a 128-bit file system. Its theoretical limits are truly mind-boggling —2128 bytes of storage, and 264 for everything else such as file systems, snapshots, directory entries, devices, and more. With Solaris ZFS, you can also quickly add any device to your storage pool. Sun offers the most scalable storage systems in the industry, ranging from >10TB to <100PB . So, when you reach the limit of your current infrastructure, you don't always have to migrate to new storage devices with new management tools. You can just change or upgrade the components you need. Flexible building blocks: Unlike traditional storage deployments, Sun openstorage environments allow customers to freely mix, match, and maximize components of their computing infrastructures as business needs change. Customers can can re-purpose and re-use hardware simply by adding new software. In contrast to EMC, Sun believes in making the most of your current infrastructure. Rapid response: With Sun's openstorage, you can create and run applications directly on a storage device, improving application response time. Manage more data with less: Creating a storage file system or performing other administrative activities is very fast—less than one second, regardless of size. There is no need to configure (or worse, reconfigure) underlying storage devices or volumes, as this is handled automatically when they are added to a pool. Solaris ZFS also enables administrators to guarantee a minimum capacity for file systems, or set quotas to limit maximum sizes. and
  • Sun Open-Storage Platform Helps Unleash the Potential of Danish Hosting Services Provider EasySpeedy, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a dedicated server hosting company with customers in nearly 90 countries. Employees at EasySpeedy include technicians, software developers, programmers, and specialists in Solaris, UNIX, BSD, and Linux environments. The company’s immediate aim is to continue growing its unmanaged hosting services, which enable customers to manage their own servers via an Internet connection. Business models may change, but IT challenges often remain the same. EasySpeedy, based in Denmark, discovered this with the success of its unmanaged hosting services solution. The service is an adaptation of the traditional managed services model, whereby instead of EasySpeedy personnel supporting customers’ servers, clients do it themselves via a Web browser and EasySpeedy’s Remote Control Center software. The idea was a success among the business community; the company attracted customers worldwide. However, along with this achievement came the familiar challenge of building for the future and delivering successful new revenue streams. Priority number one was finding a viable data storage solution for customers that was easy to scale and simple to manage. " Thanks to Sun Open Storage, EasySpeedy can cost-effectively scale data storage on demand to meet the needs of customers. What is more, the platform helps minimize power consumption and makes day-to-day management simple. " — Peter Lerche, Chief Executive Officer, EasySpeedy Because the principle of non-proprietary systems was deeply rooted in the company’s philosophy, EasySpeedy wanted the storage platform to be open. The company had already become successful through an open server platform. Its datacenter consists of 1,200 physical servers in a mixed environment of rack-optimized Sun Fire and white box servers, running 28 operating systems. The Remote Control Center is supported by Sun SPARC Enterprise servers. Peter Lerche, chief executive officer at EasySpeedy, says, "Sun Open Storage was a perfect fit for our open concept at the heart of EasySpeedy, where the customer has the power. With Open Storage, we are not locked into one product line and proprietary protocols. Sun gives us the ability to build the architecture that suits our needs. With Open Storage we have freedom, rather than being bound hand and foot." The fact that Sun Open Storage supports many different protocols ensures that it delivers EasySpeedy’s concept that clients should have the freedom to use the operating system they prefer. "Our aim is to best serve our customers. That means, simply, that we must be able to provide access to storage from a variety of operating systems including Linux, Windows, Solaris, UNIX, and Apple," says Lerche. EasySpeedy's Open Storage solution is based on Sun Storage 7410 Unified Storage System technology. The clustered solution comprises two front-end computers acting as controller heads connected to 24-TB Sun J4400 array with the Solaris 10 Operating System. Unlike many storage solutions, the software for mirroring and snapshots is built in, thereby reducing costs. In addition, Solaris ZFS technology allocates data to the most efficient media automatically, helping reduce energy consumption. Comments Lerche, "We are free to expand the number of controllers and to add more disks. This gives our customers the security of a razor-sharp service and, when Sun's pricing in volume is considered, excellent value. We can offer 100 GB of incremental storage on demand for €50 per month. Customers can continue increasing or decreasing storage through our Remote Control Center.” The company also chose Sun Open Storage because of the management software that comes as part of the package. This software gives personnel a full view of how each server performs: how quickly and accurately data is written to the disks and whether there is enough capacity. "The management software is important because it enables us to identify potential problems and to solve them. And it is completely automatic. We just follow what is on the screen," says Lerche. EasySpeedy expects its relationship with Sun to continue. "We've had a very good relationship with Sun for several years now, and we can trust that their technology works. This applies not just to the Open Storage products; the storage and backup must also serve our virtual server concept. So yes, we are happy customers," concludes Lerche.
