Running Storage Simulators in VirtualBox

I love hearing what people get up to with VirtualBox...

This week was all about Storage Simulators: using a vm to simulate a NAS device, complete with management tools, so you really get the idea of what you're buying into. I was reminded of 2 this week:

  • How to install the NetApp OnTap Simulator - a comprehensive HowTo that includes how to create the guest, how to install the OS (Oracle Enterprise Linux in this case) and then how to install the Simulator software.
  • How to use the Sun Storage 7000 Simulator which is available as a handy ovf appliance that just imports and goes.

 

Drop me a comment if you have other interesting use cases.
