Sun Storage 7110 Unified Storage System
|The January issue of PC Pro has
a very positive Amber Road review.
The reviewer, Dave Mitchell, tested an entry-level Sun Storage 7110 Unified Storage
System and he was quited impressed, calling it "something special."
Dave examined installation, performance and key features such as DTrace and the bevy of supported protocols. "The 7110 proved quick, with Iometer reporting a speedy 112MB/sec raw read throughput for one iSCSI target," he noted. Further, "real-world speeds for iSCSI were good, as copying a 2.52GB video returned read and write speeds of 89MB/sec and 76MB/sec. FTP was even faster with the FileZilla client reporting read and write speeds of 99MB/sec and 86MB/sec using the same test file."
In closing, the reviewer commented, "The 7110 delivers a complete network storage solution with no hidden catches. Both NAS and IP SAN are supported, performance is very good, and Sun won't be beaten on value."
PC Pro's final verdict: "The 7110 is the storage host with the most since it offers NAS and IP SAN support - all as standard."
Of course, the product got "PC Pro Recommended" status.
