NAS Shootout - SD Chicago 2007
Traditionally, Stanford has used SAN to support its internal customers. But recently, they discussed the benefits of running Oracle databases on NAS. Rather than make an immediate purchase, Stanford went through a rigorous requirements gathering process and then completed comprehensive testing of three systems to identify the one that met its requirements - both technological and cost.
ESG's Brian Babineau interviewed the Director of Stanford Storage Systems Group to review the major steps of Stanford's NAS Shootout. While many organizations believe that a 'shootout' solely involves performance testing, Stanford focused on manageability, resource utilization and information access.
