Storage so simple they named it twice


Last week, we introduced a new line of Unified Storage appliances, the Sun Storage 7000 family (Amber Road). Members of Startup Essentials can buy these systems right now at up to 70% off list

These new systems simplify storage administration while dramatically improving diagnostics and troubleshooting.


A few highlights:

    \* Installation and configuration in under 5 minutes
    \* Dtrace-based analytics to diagnose, troubleshoot, and resolve problems before they impact your business (and before your users complain!)
    \* ¼ the power of competing systems (more than 60% lower annual operating costs for power, space, and cooling)
    \* 75% cost/performance boost over competing systems

For Startup Essentials members, that last bullet is misleading – since it doesn't factor in your discount. I can't do the numbers, but let's just say your cost/performance boost is w-a-a-y bigger.

And if that isn't enough to get you interested, my friends in engineering gave me these cost comparison details (they're also available to talk techy with you about these systems – just let me know and I'll set it up):

    "At the mid range 7210 we provide a RAM backed (64 GB) SSD backed (18GB) storage of 22.5 TB with 2 Quad core processors for an astonishing 90c/GB. You can access this storage via, NFS, CIFS, FTP, iSCSI, HTTP/WebDav at no extra cost.

Also if a startup is using Amazon S3, consider this:

If they have 20TB of storage then the initial cost of just putting in 20TB into Amazon for a month will cost them $5300. If they have a usage pattern of 2TB in and 2TB out that will cost them $3600 a month. So the 7210 will pay for itself in 5 month."

Thats a compelling discussion point if any...want to get the discounts now, want to know why startups bought these on the day of release ?

Talk to me now to solve your storage problems, data is just data, dont get stressed over it, but understand how to make your life simpler.
