Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems
The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems deliver mission-critical entry storage for the enterprise, providing enterprise management, performance, efficiency, and seamless expansion to meet growing needs.
What is open storage?
Open storage systems combine industry-standard hardware with open-source software, and are supported by a community of thousands who have a passion to create better storage solutions. This powerful combination helps spur innovation and drives better storage economics. Developers can leverage volume servers and disk drives as well as an open storage software stack to speed storage innovation. Unlike traditional proprietary storage solutions, open storage solutions offer freedom of choice at every level of the storage system stack
At a Glance
- Cluster option for high availability
- Flash-enabled systems deliver breakthrough performance
- Real-time visibility simplifies management
- Hybrid architecture increases performance, saves energy
- Easily scale to meet growth requirements
The Sun Storage 7000 Systems is a family of unified storage systems that deliver enterprise-class data services, file and block level support, scale, and performance. Each system features a built-in, easy-to-use management interface and the industry's most comprehensive analytics environment for quickly isolating and resolving issues. They are also the only storage systems with Hybrid Storage pools that automatically optimize performance while lowering power and cooling requirements
The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System consists of four main platforms:
- Sun Storage 7110 Unified Storage System
- Sun Storage 7210 Unified Storage System
- Sun Storage 7310 Unified Storage System
- Sun Storage 7410 Unified Storage System
The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems provide the first unified storage solution that optimizes performance with Hybrid Storage Pools and delivers radical simplification of storage deployment and management - all at a cost that redefines the economics of storage.
- Cost: They deliver higher performance at up to 75% less cost than traditional storage solutions by utilizing cost-effective components and a rich set of built-in software features. Unlike other vendors, Sun charges no additional licensing fees
- Efficiency: They provide eco-efficiency due to the reduced power consumption of SSD and HDD disk drives and their energy-efficient, hybrid storage architecture
- Performance: The Hybrid Storage Pool combines DRAM, SSDs, and HDDs in the same system, dramatically reducing bottlenecks and providing breakthrough speed
- Scalability: Unlike traditional storage architectures, Sun's unified storage systems support scalability in multiple dimensions with the ability to scale I/O throughput, processor performance, and total storage capacity to meet your customer's application needs
- Ease-of-Use/Simplicity: Provisioning is dramatically simplified through easy-to-use management interfaces and graphical tools, taking the guess work out of system installation, configuration, optimization and troubleshooting
None of the competitive systems on the market today offer the comprehensive DTrace analytics or Hybrid Storage Pools that the Sun Storage 7000 Systems do. Sun also does not charge any additional licensing fees. These benefits combined with the systems' innovative management tools help you reach new levels of price/performance and unmatched simplicity of storage management.
