  • Starboard Storage offers unified storage system with SSD storage tiers
    per node The expanded performance and capacity systems have dual Xeon 5600 processors and 48 GB of memory All models support Gigabit Ethernet 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 8 Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity Pricing starts at 69 995 for the performance model 89 995 for the expanded performance model the capacity model and expanded capacity models start at 59 995 and 79 995 respectively Starboard sees the AC72 unified storage system competitive with midrange iSCSI or multiprotocol systems such as the EMC VNX 5000 NetApp FAS3000 Dell EqualLogic PS6000 and Hewlett Packard LeftHand P4500 The AC72 can scale out with ES16 and ES45 expansion shelves The 3U ES16 scales to 224 TB with each shelf containing 600 GB SAS or 2 TB near line SAS drives for high performance workloads The higher density ES45 scales to 474 TB with 600 GB SAS 2 TB SAS in front side bays and 2 TB near line SAS in the back bays The Starboard AC72 manages file and block data through one console The console includes storage application selections that help administrators set up volume and logical unit numbers LUNs across the workloads The initial systems come with five storage apps two for unstructured NFS and CIFS unstructured data two for structured data on iSCSI and Fibre Channel and one for replication Chen said Starboard will roll out more storage apps in future releases Randy Kerns senior strategist at Evaluator Group said Starboard s unified storage system is part of a newer breed of unified systems that implement storage pooling first with RAID protection added on top of the storage pooling That allows the system to add RAID to data segments or chunks based on workload requirements When data is reconstructed only the segments that are needed are rebuilt rather than all the data across the physical devices Some of the newer architectures had the opportunity to do that Kerns said They re designed to use the storage pooling technology and build on top of that They re taking advantage of all the things we have learned over the years He said Starboard s architecture has file and block capabilities built into each controller compared to older systems that have file built into one controller and block built into a separate one Starboard claims it has more than 30 systems installed at customer sites including the Mount Graham International Observatory MGIO which is the research arm for the Department of Astronomy at the University of Arizona The observatory purchased two Starboard AC72s with expansion shelves running Linux database and Microsoft SQL Server data This is the observatory s first unified storage systems implementation We wanted a solution that we could consolidate and it would be less of an administrative burden said Norm Cushing software group manager for the observatory We wanted redundancy within the unit itself It had to be self contained and this passed all of our metric specifications for performance Plus the Starboard system was a better purchase for our dollars Starboard

  • New Zealand Bank banking on SAN virtualisation strategy
    Manager for IT and Business says was needed to improve the Bank s disaster preparedness We are based in Wellington and had localised disaster recovery van de Reit told SearchStorage ANZ The big thing for us was that might not be enough if we were hit by a big earthquake So we chose to put a new production facility in Auckland there are better data centres there than in Wellington To do that we had to clean up our environment That meant virtualising everything That process uncovered the fact that the Bank operated several SANs Having disparate SANs meant that our systems were not being used to their full capacity leading to numerous cost inefficiencies and outages associated with transferring data between the systems van de Riet said The Hitachi USP VM now manages all the Bank s SANs reducing management overhead But while the Bank has virtualised it has not consolidated SANS We bought four SANs van de Riet explained One is for shared applications like e mail and file storage Another is for the core banking treasury and payment applications We decided to keep it split because operating one shared arrays has caused problems in the past A lot of our growth is not in key systems like banking it is in n mail information for reporting That is where you get a high level of change with more disk to add and so on Sharing a big sAN sounds really nice but we feel you can have too much on one system and too many stakeholders on one system We want to isolate high criticality from low criticality and that s why we went for a high tier small volume model Van de Riet said the decision to work with HDS on the project was technology driven The difference in HDS that I like is that it is an engineering company not an IT company They really understand what high availability means Dig Deeper on SAN virtualisation All News Problem Solve Bad sectors Storage news from Dell Zerowait and Waikato District Health Board VSphere Storage Appliance to replace mid range arrays analyst Why storage administrators have become bandwidth day traders EMC SAN leads server upgrade at Statewide Super Load More View All Bad sectors Storage news from Dell Zerowait and Waikato District Health Board VSphere Storage Appliance to replace mid range arrays analyst Why storage administrators have become bandwidth day traders EMC SAN leads server upgrade at Statewide Super Load More View All News How to create an iSCSI SAN using Xen How to use NAS gateways View All Problem solve ADS BY GOOGLE Latest TechTarget resources CIO AU Security AU Data Backup Disaster Recovery SMB Storage Storage Channel Search CIO com au Internet of Things Food safety apps set to emerge Food safety could emerge as a key application for the Internet of Things in the coming months providing real time visibility in Cloud security culture a building block for today s businesses As organizations today

  • VSphere Storage Appliance to replace mid-range arrays: analyst
    said at a press event today that the product is intended for organisations running up to 30 virtual machines and is designed to give smaller businesses the chance to virtualise without the cost or complexity of adding a SAN When pressed on why a user would create virtual shared storage when small unified storage devices are affordable he said it is another option McIsaac thinks it is a revolutionary option If you look at storage array they are quite expensive Why It s really just an Intel box The answer is all the engineering that goes into it But that engineering he feels is not needed because the kind of architecture VSA uses is capable of delivering comparable speed without the complexity of another physical appliance Basing his comments on conversations with users of HP s LeftHand products which have a similar approach to storage McIsaax said you can get very high IOPS The disk to processor connection is the same as in a storage array anyhow The real question is how does the data get from the storage node to the compute node With VSA they could be in the same memory an arrangement which is potentially faster than other arrangements as it means data does not need to traverse the network or internal connections to reach the CPU Nor would servers need to revert to larger form factors required to house multiple disks to scale a VSA style system McIsaac says disk drawers sitting alongside blade servers will become common to scale virtual shared storage arrays like those VSA now enables That easier scalability and high performance plus the benefits that come from avoiding the acquisition and operating costs of arrays represent disruption to the midrange market although McIsaac also said he believes VMware has deliberately started small with VSA and the concepts it uses VMware does not want to scare its partners like EMC and NetApp But if you think about all innovative technology it starts at the low end think about the initial reaction to Windows NT and Intel processors for big workloads Just like Windows and Linux and Intel put the kybosh on Unix and RISC this will disrupt midrange arrays he said Within five years it will be chasing EMC and NetApp s midrange and within seven modular storage will be on the ropes He therefore predicts that small unified storage vendors will be hurt by today s announcement VMware said it has offered such vendors briefings to make them aware of the situation Dig Deeper on SAN virtualisation All News Problem Solve Bad sectors Storage news from Dell Zerowait and Waikato District Health Board New Zealand Bank banking on SAN virtualisation strategy Why storage administrators have become bandwidth day traders EMC SAN leads server upgrade at Statewide Super Load More View All Bad sectors Storage news from Dell Zerowait and Waikato District Health Board New Zealand Bank banking on SAN virtualisation strategy Why storage administrators have become bandwidth day traders EMC SAN leads
