So what are the products we do? Lots.
Fibre Channel - The original SAN stack in Solaris. Now very mature and with the help of the 2 top FC HBA vendors in the world, this is a world-class enterprise stack. Open Sourced January 2006.
MPxIO - The built-in failover driver in Solaris. Most of this is in closed source and we're working on getting this out very soon in a more open manner. This is top priority for us because we need the help of the open source community to help us with ongoing array support and load balancing algorithms. Stay posted for more information on this very, very soon.
iSCSI - Both the initiator and the target as well as iSNS server. Open-sourced and a more recent activity is to add the target to S10U4. Working with and taking advice from he community. Great work and more to come from these product.
Disk, Tape and SES drivers - These drivers handle all sorts of activities associated with managing disk, tape and SCSI enclosure targets. The drivers have been around for some time and were included in the original open sourcing of Solaris.
AVS - Availability Suite a product coming soon to open source and also integrating into a Solaris release. The product performs block-based Point in Time Copy as well as Remote Replication. It's well-established and has been in production for many years. It's also on the cusp of open-sourcing, the proposal has been accepted and we are very close to posting. Be looking for this soon!!
UI for the SAM/Q filesystem and archiving products - Nice interface into a very robust product makes administration and setup easy.
UI for 58xx - Coming soon in the next release of this product, we're working on this now.Shoot. Score!
