    Yes this is something I am particularly interested in.

    Phil - very big welcome to Edugeek. Will we have the ability to take our 7110s and plug in something like a J4200 or J4400 array, in order to repidly and easily expand the current storage with 7200, 10,000 or 15,000RPM SAS drives as and when we need them?

    Cheers

    Just got the new software on, got some nice new features:

    Snapshots now work with the Windows Previous Versions client
    Share level ACL's
    Webdav now works over https

    That was 3 out of 4 things I had on my wish list! Brilliant stuff!

    Now testing to see if copying ownership permissions works better now...

    Done some work with Phil a few weeks ago when we were deciding on the storage solutions, great bloke who really knows his stuff and is very keen on the education market. Great to see him on here.

    Phil has asked me to post his email address here. You can contact him or us to ask questions.

    His email address is Phil.Lawrence at Sun dot COM

    Phil has given us at Cutter fantastic support in getting 7000 series into education.

    Just a note on supported web browsers when updating and accessing the 7000 series

    IE6 and Firefox 3 are not supported and you may see error messages

    Currently supported are:

    IE 7
    Safari
    Firefox 2
    Chrome

    Guys,

    just another note. Later this week the new AR simulator will be released. You will be able to update this as if it were real and Virtualbox version may also be included

    *welcomes Phil and adds another "tell us about the JBOD functionality on v1.0 units" request*

    It's not precisely a deal-killer for me, but it would be good to know whether this functionality will be available.

    I have a question, do the SUNs support over allocation on LUNs? For example can I allocate a 1TB LUN for example if I only have 500 gigabytes of free space?

    EDIT: Sparse volume might be what I'm looking for, will have to check first.

There are a whole bunch of new and exciting things happening with the S7000 so watch this space.

    If you (or others on here) need more detailed information today based on our current roadmap then please fee free to contact me directly. Andy Trevor (top bloke) from Cutter has already put my contact details on here.

    Hebdenlad is because I live in Hebden Bridge (West Yorkshire). Cannot comment on Andy though... probably a mis spent youth.

    FYI, i have just received the latest roadmap for the S7000 from the USA. More tomorrow.....

    Cheers,

    Phil
