Sun StorEdge A5000 Array
Configuring for Enterprise Class Storage
November 3, 1998,
Volume 8, Issue 1

Since the introduction of the Sun StorEdge A5000 family in November 1997, this advanced Fibre Channel product line has sold more than 1,600 Terabytes of storage, become the mainstay of Sun's Network Storage offering, and been the principle contributor to Sun's position as the number one seller of UNIX-attached storage. Given this success and the continued market move towards Fibre Channel-based arrays, Sun will be using this family as the baseline for the majority of future business in Enterprise Class storage.

In order to drive further growth in the Fibre Channel business Sun is taking a number of key initiatives this quarter to maintain leadership in this market sector and provide maximum customer satisfaction with both their existing and new A5000 arrays.

These initiatives include:

  • The introduction of the next generation of systems monitoring and diagnostic tools to ensure maximum reliability and availability required by Enterprise class customers and channel associates

  • Guidelines for positioning the family members to ensure customer satisfaction and sustained revenue growth

  • Guidelines for configuring multiple A5000 arrays for maximum availability, serviceability, and performance
