  • Animal Logic changes two storage platforms: Isilon and DataDirect Networks in, NetApp's role reduced
    jumps and we needed much much faster throughput Timbs said We can have multiple simultaneous reads and writes and the time requirements per node for grading of films is anywhere from about 300 megs to 600 or 700 sustained for one seat For 3D animation those requirements can double as it requires simultaneous transmission of two 2k a digital video format 2048 pixels wide video streams Animal Logic previously used storage products from Bright Systems but those systems struggled to cope with the company s new requirements In the early stages of our evaluation of Data Direct we fragmented the filesystem as much as we could to 50 or 60 and filled it to 95 and were still getting good performance Timbs said We call the DDN kit the sledgehammer it has brute strength No matter how many obstacles we put in front of it it worked But on our previous SANs could never imagine fragmentation of 15 or 20 before we got dropped frames Timbs said he found the choice of the new storage system challenging We had a bigger budget than usual because we wanted something that would work he said We had a very specific requirement and felt that a lot of existing vendors we had relationships with had products that may be used for this app did not really fit the bill When it comes time to assess a storage vendor there are about 50 you can choose from and you really need to rapidly chisel it down to two or three and then really start going through the detail When Timbs and his team applied this process to the systems for its theatres it found that Data Direct was widely used in its industry and formed part of the solution offered by a provider of turnkey solutions he had considered for the job We started looking at DDN but they did not have a high local profile and the support base which concerned us a bit Once we called around to some of our peers and found out what they were using and the reference sites we saw it was a very very capable company producing a premium product at an attractive price point and very accepted in our industry The clincher for Animal Logic was the company s relationship with IBM which resells and supports DDN products in Australia Their backing from IBM meant we wanted to give them a lot of time to see what they had to offer Timbs told SearchStorage ANZ After the presales meetings we were blown away by thoroughness of technical and pre sales team including the local IBM people The product s performance also swayed Animal Logic s choice During testing we used the SA6620 their brick all in one We were blown away by the filesystem performance for that many spindles and the density of the shelves 4RUwith 60 disks mixed SATA and SAS We ve done a few technology assessments where five or six senior engineers

  • EMC vs. NetApp argument erupts over Bycast buy, UCS implementations
    it is worth SearchStorage ANZ has asked Cisco s Australian PR folk if NetApp is indeed the UCS bigness title holder Sadly they were not able to find a definitive answer but pointed us to this press release about the 400 companies that have bought UCS In case you have an aversion to reading press releases the easily bored or nervous should really leave that to professionals as we in the journalism corps are hardened to their extreme obfuscation and dullness the document in question does not mention NetApp The other running argument of late concerns IBM s XIV and whether it occasionally duds data New Blogger Storage Gorilla joins the meme this week while Storage Buddhist is keen to prove XIV s chops and Inside Systems Storage defends its turf as well The Buddhist also dropped an interesting tweet into the world It read EMC s largest customer in New Zealand has rejected V Plex V Max selected IBM SVC DS8700 to manage augment their DMX farm Or at least it did read that yesterday the tweet has since been deleted Your correspondent suspects this is because we asked the Buddhist and IBM s local flaks if they could expand on the tweet and maybe identify the customer We suspect the Buddhist may have been told to take down the tweet While we re on the Buddhist we think it s pretty funny that we now have a Storage Buddhist and a Storage Gorilla to go with StorageZilla the Storage Anarchist and others It sounds like a good joke A Buddhist a Gorilla an Anarchist and Godzilla walk into a data centre Let s get this thing back on track Another debate sprawling across the blogosphere this week concerns dedpue ratios and starts with this CommVault piece and has since brnched out to include AboutRestore and W Curtis Preston Storage Texan and Storage Gumbo are also having a nice discussion about treating storage like a hotel Elsewhere Stephen Foskett has a great piece about multipath I O and Emulex heads to similar territory IDEAS International analyses Dell s cloud storage plans Ray on Storage makes an interesting point how much storage will smart meters need Preston de Guise looks at Sun s OEM deals with backup vendors Pivot Point looks at VMware s evolving storage position as does Boche and StorageNerve posts one of what will become many many posts from GestatlIT s second Tech Field Day Modern backup considers how cloud storage leads to lock in and Robin Harris is impressed by SSD maker Violin StorageRap also has a video of MySpace talking about how its kit gets used to power the social network and HDS Hu Yoshida talks up the finer points of thin provisioning We say predictably because last week we inferred that NetApp bloggers were acting in concert to bring certain messages to light That idea that was later dismissed in a conversation with someone who is a lot closer to the company than your
