    Thumbs up Sun Storage 7110

    Like... WOW!

    I just bought a couple of Sun 7110 Storage Units and have this morning got round to having a play with one. I haven't configured it how I want it yet... I'm just playing but it's awesome.

    Initial setup involved the use of a 6-step wizard! That was it... it's done!!!

    I'm going to set up all the iSCSI and CIFS stuff I want on it later (when I have 5 minutes to kill) and I plan to sync it with the second one which appears to be a tick box.

    Awesome... truly awesome!

    That's great to know. Currently looking at buying one of these (although given the conversation I had yesterday it may be turning into two!) later this week

    Hopefully it'll be two . Do you know if Sun have released the functionality to use the JBOD units for expansion yet? May be looking to get them now given the price they're available for with the Matching Grant Program!

    You can knock a couple of grand per unit off list price as an education customer. The Cutter Project are your guys for these at the moment!

    Was holding off for the 4TB version, but one of our file servers has gone belly up

    I can barely afford bread and water here never mind two of those

    How come they don't use 15k drives though?

    Where list price == what??

    What disks did your units come with?

    I'm hopefully in the market for a SAN box for our other building this year. The first SAN purchase has proved to be pretty good... 8TB in RAID 6 with 8 slots still empty. I was bothered about performance because it's hard to get worthwhile performance stats for any of these devices, but it turns out access is roughly twice as fast as our servers' local disks.
