30 Mar 2014 Using COMSTAR and ZFS to Configure a Virtualized Storage Environment [35505]
by Alexandre Borges

"How to use COMSTAR to provide local iSCSI storage for any service that runs in Windows, Linux, or Mac OS. It also shows you how to configure authentication using the Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) to secure the iSCSI storage against forbidden access. Part 1 of a series about ZFS...

Oracle Solaris 11 introduced a framework named Common Multiprotocol SCSI TARget (COMSTAR) that supports the iSCSI protocol, making it possible to turn any Oracle Solaris 11 host into an iSCSI target, which offers storage to other machines, or an iSCSI initiator, which uses software that functions like a host bus adapter (HBA) to access the storage offered by an iSCSI target. This capability is a real advantage, because any storage offered through the iSCSI protocol is available to an iSCSI initiator as local storage, without the need to use expensive technologies such as Fibre Channel (FC). In addition, COMSTAR supports protocols such as FC and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) without the need for an HBA..."

09 Nov 2012 SPARC T4-4 Delivers New World Record Performance [28397]
Subsecond Response Time on Oracle OLAP Perf Version 2 Benchmark

Oracle's SPARC T4-4 server server with 4 x SPARC T4 processors, 3.0 GHz, and 1 TB memory delivered world record performance with subsecond response time on the Oracle OLAP Perf Version 2 benchmark using Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Oracle OLAP option running on Oracle Solaris 11. Data storage employed 1 x Sun Fire X4275 (using COMSTAR) and 2 x Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array (each with 80 FMODs). Redo storage used 1 x Sun Fire X4275. The SPARC T4-4 server achieved throughput of 430,000 cube-queries/hour with an average response time of 0.85 seconds and the median response time of 0.43 seconds.

01 Apr 2010 Sun Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) 3.1.1 Released [22991]
Now Supports Sun Storage 7000 Firmware 2010.Q1

Oracle's Sun Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) 3.1.1 is the latest release of the software, which now offers support for the Sun Storage 7000 firmware 2010.Q1. "Now VDI supports the COMSTAR stack, now you see a storage utilization that you always wanted to see," cheers Dirk Grobler on his blog Jumping VDI. "Way better CPU numbers, much better IOPS, online deduplication for those who look into application streaming. This storage/VDI combination really rocks."
