    The 28th May would be a good time but I'm on holiday that day (it's my sons birthday and I'll be up to my eyes in iPODs and Lego!). Any alternative ideas?

    Have a great weekend all.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    Pete,

    More than happy to come to "darkest Lincolnshire"... give me a call to sort. You need to understand what we have done with SSDs, ZFS and HSP...

    Cheers,

    Guys,

    just to let you know that the 4TB 7110 has just hit the price lists. Just working on getting the Edu price confirmed.

    It is currently not on Matching Grant or Edu promo, I am however aware that the Matching Grant List is due for update early next week.

    Will keep you all posted.

    Quick update on pricing for the 4TB unit.

    Standard education pricing for you guys, brings it out at 9,920.00 + VAT

    Will update if any news on MGP or Promo pricing in the future.

    New S7000 Simulator

    Morning all,

    I'm sure you all be pleased to know that the new 2009.Q2 simulator is now available for download.

    You can find it here: http://blogs.sun.com/fishworks/entry...e_7000_2009_q2

    It is very easy to set up and use. You'll need VMware player which can be found at loads of places on the internet. I use www.filehippo.com to find that sort of thing and it has a whole bunch of other useful software there too.

    Enjoy the week.

    Warmest regards,

    Phil

    VirtualBox version of S7000 simulator

    Morning all (again),

    Am waiting to see what the public URL is for the VirtualBox version of the S7000 simulator.

    If you simply cannot wait then let me know on here and I'll burn a CD for you.

    Regards,

    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    Thanks for this - but the blog post only seems to have a link to the Sun Download centre for the firmware release rather than the vmware image of the simulator.

    Unless I've missed something (likely!)

    Cheers

    Alan

    Oops. See what you mean. you can eventually get to the download section.

    But in the interests of public safety and hygene here is another URL

    Sun Storage 7000 Series Software Updates - Fishworks - wikis.sun.com

    For those of you not wanting to go to 2009.Q2 you can see the earlier 1.0x releases here as well.

    You do not need to go through the releases to update to the latest version. You can go straight to the 2009.Q2 from 1.0 if you wish.

    For those of you in a non-clustered environment you will experience a short outage.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    Am I being ultra thick here - or is that page still linking to the actual firmware upgrade for the 7000 series rather than the vmware simulator?

    or is the sim included in the firmware update?

    Cheers

    I'm fairly sure that's the upgrade package I applied to my Simulator.

    So is it just an upgrade pack? If so do you have a link to the simuator download Kim?

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    I've not yet seen a new link turn up for the Simulator (with this update applied).

    I'm sure Phil will be able to furnish us with a bit more info as it becomes available.

    Aah I see.

    I have not got the old version running - so I will wait for a new version!
