benr test drives COMSTAR

Ben Rockwood decided to take COMSTAR out for a spin. This is a pretty cool piece of technology. I've already blogged about this several times. I'm going to be speaking at the OpenSolaris Storage Summit.

And I'll be presenting on COMSTAR and how to use these pieces.

COMSTAR iSER/iSCSI binary drops available!

Development is moving along pretty quickly for the iSER project. We are churning out weekly builds for development for COMSTAR iSCSI and iSER.

If you are interested in either of these things now is a good time to dig in. Sign up for the mailing list and start to test things out. It doesn't take much to set up a system to play with iSCSI, but for iSER you will need some special equipment.

Come on down and join in the fun.

I'm famous!

Well, not really ;-) I was videoed giving a presentation at CommunityOne digging into the details of COMSTAR. I blogged about it a while back. You can check me out below:

CommunityOne! OpenStorage

Yesterday I gave a presentation at Community One on Storage. Sun has just recently announced it's OpenStorage Initiative. Part of that technology is a project called COMSTAR. The presentation I did talked through the way to create a multiprotocol storage device. This used ZFS to export things using NFS and CIFS, but to also use COMSTAR to export over fiber channel. In the future COMSTAR will support iSCSI, iSER, FCoE and SAS. It is a really unique technology that will challenge the current market of disk arrays.

Update: you can see a video of this presentation.
