    Okai, probably very stupid question time here, but do you need a complete Sun system for the Sun SANs to work or could i use one with a standard vanilla Server 2003 / 2008 network with nothing Sun on them.

    They are an Open storage platform. You can chuck them into anything. No other Sun kit required.

    They will fit in a standard Windows network.

    Gartner Quote on Open Storage

    Guys,

    saw this about Amber Rd

    "I have been covering storage from 10 years and this is the first time that I have become excited about what Sun is doing in storage. Amber Road is the first disruptive technology that I've seen in storage space in 10 years. This is a NAS product that is much better than anything Net App and EMC offer and is a huge opportunity for Sun..." Roger Cox, Gartner Research VP and Distinguished Analyst:

    Using 7110 and J4200?

    The other good bit is that you will be able to bolt a J4200 JBOD unit underneath as you need to expand the capacity.

    If you need anymore info drop me a PM.

    Hi Linescanner - are you sure about that last part? My Sun rep is saying we can't use a J4200 off of a 7110. Would sure love it if we could!

    Yeah, I am. It is not currently but will be in the next software release due shortly. As I understand it will be up to 3 JBODs (not fully sure on this)
