The Sun FireTM 12K Server is now supported with SunTM Cluster 3.0
Software in the SunPlexTM platform environment.
SunPlex systems are ideally suited for any enterprise where the
availability and scalability of application services and information is
critical. SunPlex systems deliver Service Point Architecture
capabilities using tightly coupled pools of resources, making it
possible to manage the service, not the server. The SunPlex system,
enabled by Sun Cluster 3.0 Software, is a Service Level Management
Platform. SunPlex systems deliver higher availability by pooling
resources for easier management.
Service level is what users demand on the client side. This is where
quality of service (QoS) is measured, but it is dependent
on an infrastructure that delivers these services behind the scenes.
Service level allows users to access the service (accessibility,
availability, resiliency), which then responds in a timely manner
(response, capacity), consistent with the user expectation.
Service level costs consist of the following:
- Ownership equals cost of the IT resources
- Provisioning equals cost of getting more IT resources
- Implementation equals cost to put IT resources into service
- Management equals cost to manage and maintain IT resources and services
Sun Cluster 3.0 Software provides a highly available and
scalable framework that allows multiple SolarisTM Operating
Environment (Solaris OE) images to interoperate in a tightly coupled,
and easy-to-manage fashion, enabling customers to achieve higher
service levels at lower cost and minimized risk.
