OpenStorage Recipe: ZFS + Bunch of Disks (+ Flash Memory) = 1$/GB

The second round (my count) of OpenStorage announcements are out. This includes the next rev of Thumper, as well as a new storage family - Sun Storage J4000.

ALT DESCR

The successor to Thumper is SunFire x4500, faster and bigger than before but still the same storage/server hybrid.

The new storage family combines a Bunch of Disks (BoD) - SATA/SAS - and OpenSolaris/ZFS (and later Flash Memory), to deliver up to 72Gb/sec throughput and up to 192 SATA disks on 16RU at around 1$ per GB.
