Oracle Brings out the Big Guns, Rolls out the FS1 Flash Storage System [38714]
DCIG Blog by Jerome M. Wendt

Jerome writes, "Dedicating a single flash-based storage array to improving the performance of a single application may be appropriate for siloed or small SAN environments. However this is NOT an architecture that enterprises want to leverage when hosting multiple applications in larger SAN environments, especially if the flash-based arrays has only a few or unproven data management services behind it. The new Oracle FS1 Series Flash Storage System addresses these concerns by providing enterprises both the levels of performance and the mature and robust data management services that they need to move flash-based arrays from the fringes of their SAN environments into their core.

Throwing flash memory at existing storage performance problems has been the de facto approach of most hybrid and flash memory storage arrays released to date. While these flash-based arrays deliver performance improvements of 3x to as much as 20x or more over traditional hard disk drive (HDD) based arrays, they are frequently deployed as a single array dedicated to improving the performance of a single application..."

StorageTek SAM-QFS 5.4 [38569]
Open source filesystem and Hierarchical Storage Manager

QFS is an open source filesystem. It is tightly integrated with SAM, the Storage and Archive Manager, and hence is often referred to as SAM-QFS. SAM provides the functionality of a Hierarchical Storage Manager.

StorageTek Storage Archive Manager (SAM) 5.4 is the most significant update in several years. It contains numerous enhancements, including:

  • Horizontal scalability enables users to increase the rate at which they archive data by 10x
  • Automated data integrity validation enables the archive to automatically self-audit and then self-heal if necessary
  • Files can now be imported and exported from the archive in LTFS format Page.

ZFS Storage for Virtualization and Cloud [38033]
By Meghan Fritz

Meghan writes, "I had the good fortune over the weekend to read through a VMware Press book called Essential Virtual SAN: Administrator's Guide to VMware Virtual SAN by Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping. Very good book.

First, I'd like to observe that VSAN is a very interesting idea, but based on the content of this book, it's still in it's early days. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say that things like VSAN just might be the barbarian at the gate for certain storage use cases, as they aim to get virtual machine storage to be highly integrated with the virtual machine infrastructure..."
