Communications Suite: Cutting Your Storage Costs
By joesciallo on Jun 30, 2009
Just published: a white paper on designing tiered storage with Messaging Server, with the eye on cutting storage costs. Abstract:
Service providers face unrelenting pressure to increase storage for user mailboxes. This paper explains how using production products, such as Sun Communications Suite software, the Solaris ZFS file system, and a Sun Storage array, can cut storage costs by half, while performance (measured by messages per second) can be increased by more than 50 percent in environments with millions of users. Extensive load testing has shown that this single-rack solution provides a cost-effective message store for two million users. It is easily replicated and highly modular.
