First Look at Amber Road (Sun 7000 unified storage system)
By was on Nov 13, 2008
I received two amber road (Sun 7000 Unified Storage Systems) today and hooked them up in record time. I can't begin to tell you how impressive the install was. Simple, to the point, minimum necessary to get the boxes running and it \*just worked\*.
I've installed lots of different kinds of hardware here at Sun - and frankly this was almost un-Sun like in it's simplicity. Don't confuse folks, don't make it hard. Default to the right thing. 5 minutes and I have a usable \*system\*.
Stunning. And the performance from the tests I've run is just incredible. I thought I made a mistake in my calculations, and no, it was \*that freaking fast\*.
If you've not had the pleasure, take the time and try out the box. What can you lose other than a few hours trying out some really great hardware and software - it is after all Fully Integrated Software and Hardware (fishworks!)
