Flash memory technology has been a total game changer in the consumer space over the last twenty years. Now, enterprises are starting to reap the benefits of flash.

Listen to this edition of Innovating@Sun in which host Hal Stern, VP Global Systems Engineering, Sun Microsystems, interviews Lisa Noordergraaf, a Senior Performance Engineer in Sun's Performance Technologies group, on flash as a disruptive technology and how Sun's innovation with flash in the storage hierarchy has vastly improved system performance for enterprises.

Just a Bunch of Disks (JBOD) - Introducing the Sun Storage J4000

Reliability is key in your storage device; it can make the difference between compliance and a multi-million dollar lawsuit in some cases. With the failure rate of layers of a storage device being almost a certainty at a network scale, it is more critical than ever to employ technology that can intelligently identify bytes of data and maintain their integrity throughout the data management process.

That's the driving force behind the development of the Sun Storage J4000 family array (aka JBOD for Just A Bunch Of Disks), with more value being placed on general purpose software running on industry-standard architecture and JBODs than ever before. As Bill Moore (photo), Chief Engineer of Systems Storage Group, points out in his interview with Hal Stern, VP of Global Systems Engineering, in this edition of Innovating@Sun, "the true value is in the software, software like ZFS and Solaris, that will be able to take advantage of the capabilities of the general purpose compute and make what people used to think as 'oh, yawn, another JBOD' into something that would be even more powerful and more reliable than your typical storage array is today."
