In this edition, Chhandomay and I discuss Sun's top spot in tape storage automation revenue for the first half of 2009, as well as an eWeek article discussing Sun's Solaris Operating System's optimization for Intel Nehalem processors.
This week Sun announced that to date
more than 17 petabytes of total data storage from the
Storage 7000 family have been sold to hundreds of customers
across a wide range of industries. This makes the Sun Storage 7000
family the fastest growing new product in Sun's storage portfolio
ever! The solutions offered within the family have already saved
users more than $50 million in storage costs.
Sun also announced hardware capacity
enhancements to the Sun Unified Storage family, and an upgrade to its
Analytics software (which ships with the Sun Storage 7000 line), and
gives storage administrators unparalleled insight into their storage
