Sun Storage 7000 2009.Q2.2.1 Release

New: 7310! Entry-level expandability with clustering

Today we announced the newest member of the 7000 series family: the Sun Storage 7310. The 7310 is an expandable system that supports clustering much like the high-end 7410 but at a lower price point. Take a look at Adam's blog post for more. For an entry-level clustered system the performance, however, is far from entry-level. Brendan has taken the same metrics used to evaluate the 7410 to measure the performance of the 7310 and it's quite the little speedster — especially considering its market segment.

Sun Storage 7000 2009.Q2.1.0 Release

A new minor update to the 2008.Q2 software has been posted. This includes several fixes, including a fix that addresses incomplete resilvering with RAID-Z storage pools. All users with single- or double-parity RAID storage pools, clustered 7410 systems, or CIFS installations are encouraged to upgrade to this release as soon as possible.

Complete release notes can be found here.

Sun Storage 7000 2008.Q4.2.2 Release

A new micro update to the 2008.Q4 (formerly "1.0.x") software has been posted. This includes a fix that addresses incomplete resilvering when replacing disks within a RAID stripe. All users with single- or double-parity RAID storage pools that have not yet switched to the 2009.Q2 release are strongly encouraged to upgrade to this release as soon as possible. Data is properly resilvered during a scrub, so you can also scrub your storage pool if you have replaced a disk.

7110 4TB update

Last week we quietly released an updated version of the 7110, the entry-level model in the 7000 series product lineup. The image below shows the two versions of the 7110 now available.

Can't tell the difference? The 7110 on the left is the original 2TB version while the new model on the right has 4.2TB raw capacity. In the new version we've replaced the 146GB 10K RPM SAS drives with a 300GB model, thus doubling the storage (plus a bit). Both are available on sun.com; take a look.
