Not just another NAS appliance

Sun just announced a new line of storage appliances that will forever change the NAS appliance market. By using OpenSolaris and technologies such as ZFS, DTrace, FMA and SMF with standard-based storage server, Sun is able to bring the products to market at a much cheaper price point than its competitor and yet provide more differentiated features such as:

  1. Analytics - With DTrace as the underlying technologies, Analytics allow users to ask questions about the storage system in production in realtime from a GUI.
  2. Hybrid Storage Pool - Leveraging the Flash technology, the ZFS Hybrid Storage Pool transparently manages DRAM, Flash, and low-cost hard drives, providing a high performance and cost effective storage solution.
  3. Remote Replication - Data can easily replicated with minimum configuration from the browser using the powerful ZFS features.
  4. Supported Protocols: NFS, CIFS, iSCSI, HTTP, WebDAV, FTP

To get more technical information about these exciting new NAS appliances, checkout the blogs and demos from the engineering team.

BTW, you can also try out the products for 60 days for FREE.
