    S7000 updates....

    Hi there Edugeek(ers),

    Just a short note this morning to make you aware of some of the new Open Storage stuff here at Sun.

    CPUs
    The S7110 now has the new 6-core processors which replace the original 4-core processors. The good news is that there is no price difference

    The S7310 also has the new 6-core processors as well and again there is no price difference.

    I've not seen the new performance figures for the S7310 or the S7110 but based on what we saw with the S7410 it's only going to get better.

    Newbies
    For those of you new to the S7000 or are looiking for consolidated storage for your VMs, student and staff data then here's a good starting point:

    Fishworks

    This blog gives you some good jump off points for more information and detail about the S7000 and all the good stuff.

    We're coming to BETT2010! You'll get to see Sun at BETT 2010. Not sure how and where we'll be but rest assured we will be there. And you might even get to see me too!! Scary or what?

    More to follow later this month as we edge closer and closer to the festive season.

    Warmest regards,

    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    If I get another 7410 head to go with my existing one and cluster them, will the newer Istanbul model play nicely with my older Barcelona model, and will I get any benefits from the faster head or will it have to run at the speed of the older one?

    Cheers!
    Chris

    Hey, I didn't say I could afford it yet...

    I'm planning for redundancy with my S7000s (clustering and replication), whether I get the budget to do it is another story entirely!

    Well if it won't work and you end up getting two Istanbul based heads you can always donate your "old" 7410 head to me

    John,

    Hmmm, now I know you'll be "there" (not spelling of this and not "their") I might have to rethink plans ;-)
