Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems: Architected for Open, Simple, and Scalable Enterprise Storage
As organizations strive to manage their rapidly expanding storage infrastructure, they face challenges that are technical, managerial, and economic. Traditional NAS appliances have fallen short, due to the proprietary nature of their software and the special-purpose nature of underlying hardware. The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems represent an innovative new approach that enables organizations to use scalable, high-performance unified storage for more of their most important applications.
The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems are based on robust and balanced industry-standard Sun servers, removing performance bottlenecks and offering a scalable and expandable product line. Innovative enterprise SSDs bring a new dimension, expanding caching capabilities and performance while keeping costs in line. Seamless Sun Storage 7000 Storage Software presents an easy-to-use administrative interface that requires little or no training to operate.
By using open technologies, Oracle's Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems avoid the constraints, pitfalls, and costs of traditional storage appliances. Oracle Solaris ZFS provides hybrid storage pools that effectively combine system memory, enterprise SSDs, and conventional disk drives. DTrace Analytics gives administrators real-time access to in-depth business analytics, enabling them to respond to and anticipate issues. Together, these technologies promise to change the very nature of unified storage.
