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

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  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

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  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  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

HP's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers: Focusing on Reliability and Expandability


Hewlett-Packard's four-CPU rackmount products, the NetServer LH4r and LXr 8000, are aimed at customers who want reliable, expandable server installations.

(Refer to Table 1 and Graph 1 for market share figures). The rackmount market is growing, partly due to server market growth in general, and partly due to a shift from pedestal/floor-standing/ tower servers. We believe that rackmount servers will be about 60% of the general server market within 1-2 years (vs. 30-40% 2-3 years ago), Read More

External Drive Backup Warning


Backing up critical data on an external drive provides only minimal protection against one type of data loss: hard drive failure and nothing else. External drives are easily damaged, lost, or stolen. Portable drive backups are rarely taken off-site and are insecure, time-consuming, and limited. And when an external drive holding key data no longer works, what will you do? There’s a better way to back up data. Learn more.

Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services / MS Office SharePoint Server 2007


Collaborative tools are becoming essential to sharing data in today’s office environment. You need a solution that can grow to accommodate new projects and uses—and a storage system that is flexible enough to meet initial demands and adapt to changes. Find out how a multiple-node storage area network (SAN) can maximize the scalability and functionality of your collaboration tools, and ease storage administration.

disk array  will be caught by disk RAID. Another drive failure in the same array will be caught by nRAID. Also, due to the method by which nRAID creates data replicas, even multiple nodes can go down without interruption of service. In fact, (here comes the really cool part), by physically locating half of your storage nodes in one location, and the other half in a different location, you can suffer the complete failure of a location (a failure of half the storage nodes), and still keep running! There is no Read More

How Do You Categorize Notebooks?


The notebook computer market has become one of the remaining battlegrounds for computer manufacturers. Our purpose here is to define the notebook market segments, describe what the general characteristics of each segment are, and to give users an idea of what features they can expect for each segment.

Until recently, notebooks did not allow this, so storage-heavy users were limited by how large a disk manufacturers could cram into the system, and hope an upgrade was possible as disk densities increased. However, more and more, we are seeing notebooks capable of housing a second HDD. The space constraints of notebooks can lead to tradeoffs regarding which other drives are present in the system. A typical desktop will have floppy Read More
