Article about Sun ZFS Storage Appliances

Sun ZFS Storage Appliances are versatile storage systems. Discovering and managing them in Ops Center, though, makes them even more versatile. If you discover a Sun ZFS Storage Appliance in Ops Center 12c, you can create iSCSI and Fibre Channel LUNS, and make the LUNs available to server pools and virtualization hosts as a storage library.

Barbara Higgins has written an excellent article that walks you through the process of setting up a Sun ZFS Storage Appliance and discovering and managing it in Ops Center. If you're looking into ways to make a Sun ZFS Storage Appliance work for you, it's worth a look.

Comments:

Barbara's article is interesting, but I was wondering if Ops Center can talk to the ZFS appliance to create iSCSI LUNs on the fly (on demand from a plan executed in Ops Center)?

Thanks

No. Ops Center plans don't log into the ZFS storage appliance and perform actions. Ops Center uses the LUNs that are known to it.
