New Storage Array from Sun
Sun has launched an attempt to break into the ranks of large-scale and enterprise storage system vendors like EMC, IBM, and Compaq.

The system scales capacity, performance and availability in a linear and predictable fashion, with a capacity expansion range of 162 gigabytes (GB) to 88 terabytes (TB). As capacity increases, performance increases by a predictable amount, and availability scales as additional data paths and redundancy are added. This provides for higher

Buyer's Guide to Enterprise Storage Resources


Organizations of all sizes face similar challenges when managing storage—not enough capacity or protection. Help has arrived with Internet small computer system interface storage area networks (iSCSI SANs)—and they're steadily gaining momentum. With iSCSI SANs, businesses can effectively manage their storage needs, while lowering costs and increasing security. Find out why many industry leaders are choosing iSCSI today.

disk array storage  not had one single disk failure yet, says Weismann, referring to Veloci- ty Express' Sun FlexLine array after nearly two years of use. That level of reliability might be a stretch for most storage managers, but it underscores the faith we place in the reliable operation of installed hardware. In contrast to the initial product quality category, which had the widest scoring spread, product reliability had the narrowest. In fact, less than one point separated EqualLogic's top finish (5.92) from EMC's 4.98 Read More

How to Make Virtualized iSCSI SANs Work for You


Enterprises of all sizes are building flexible storage infrastructures by using iSCSI and virtualization technologies that let them allocate and shift storage area network (SAN) resources dynamically in response to the demands of their virtualized server environments. Find out how a virtualized infrastructure with virtualization technologies can help you achieve an IT infrastructure that is simple to manage and scale.

disk array storage  correspond to a virtual disk within the ESX environment, circumventing the VMFS DataStore. A third alternative is to employ the native iSCSI software initiator of the individ- ual guest operating system to connect directly to the SAN-resident volume. AUTOMATIC LOAD BALANCING Volumes are distributed among the group's member arrays, with data placement and access continually adjust- ed for optimal performance as resources are added or workloads change. When an array is added as a group member, its disk Read More

SQL Server Technical Briefing


iSCSI storage area networks (SANs) offer an alternative for building SANs. Consolidating storage in a SAN offers storage management and scaling benefits for data centers, and iSCSI support in Windows Server 2003 makes connecting servers to an iSCSI SAN easier and more affordable. Read this technical briefing to understand best practices and the benefits of using an iSCSI SAN with SQL Server 2005.

Hardware Considerations SQL Server 2005 hardware deployment best practices must be followed for optimal operations'no changes were needed to accommodate the iSCSI environment. All tests were run using the Microsoft iSCSI software Initiator with three dedicated network interface cards (NICs) for iSCSI traffic and two additional NICs for client and crossover networks. Another option for iSCSI deployments is iSCSI Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) . HBAs can benefit SQL Read More

How to Find the Right Virtualization Solution for You


Is scrambling to consolidate and virtualize your information systems department frazzling you and your hardware? Are management and infrastructure costs not as low as you’d like them to be? Separate your business applications from your physical server hardware—and make your virtual infrastructure more dynamic and flexible, while reducing costs. The trick is doing it without losing space or key data. Find out how.

disk array storage  understand the impacts on disk I/O performance, data protection, and storage utilization. To begin with, a storage system must at a minimum provide the aggregated disk I/O performance of the combined distributed platforms being consolidated. Virtual infrastructures can apply a significant I/O load on disk subsystems. This load is a result of the VMware default storage design. With VMware VMFS datastore, multiple virtual disks (or VMDK files) are stored, which means that multiple virtual machines are Read More

Architecting SANs for Successful Deployments


The first step to a successful storage area network (SAN) implementation is preplanning. Architecting a SAN not only helps solve issues of storage consolidation, it facilitates day-to-day data center support and maintenance. A SAN investment should save support dollars, not require additional support resources. With a sound implementation strategy, costly upgrades—and many headaches—can be avoided.
