Example configurations

  • Sun storage/Configuration 1 (large, NAS, direct FC for hosts)
    • + Fast access for hosts that need it (but maybe this isn't needed)
    • - No failover of NAS head
  • Sun storage/Configuration 2 (large, NAS only, external FC storage)
    • - No failover of NAS head
  • Sun storage/Configuration 3 (large, NAS only, integrated storage)
    • + NAS head failover
    • - RAID-5 only (no 0/1/10)
  • Sun storage/Configuration 5 (6540 array, large, NAS only, server NAS head)
    • + NAS head failover
    • - Server as NAS head needs more effort to configure
    • - No iSCSI target
  • Sun storage/Configuration 4 (3510 array, medium, NAS only, server NAS head)
    • + NAS head failover
    • - Server as NAS head needs more effort to configure
    • - No iSCSI target
  • Sun storage/Configuration 6 (25x0 array, medium, NAS only, server NAS head)
    • + NAS head failover
    • + Simple architecture managed by host system
    • - Server as NAS head needs more effort to configure
    • - No iSCSI target
    • - SAS or FC-AL disks only
