22 Apr 2010 Get Better Storage Performance [22962]
Avoid Misalignment Resulting from Disk Partitioning Software

"Because of disk partitioning software on your storage clients or a mismatch between storage configuration and application request pattern, you could be suffering a 2-4X performance degradation," writes Roch Bourbonnais in his blog "Proper Alignment for extra Performance." While he credits the Sun Storage 7000 server line with great flexibility in selecting different blocksizes for different use within a single pool of storage, he notes that the line has no control on the offset that could be selected during disk partitioning of block devices on client systems. Care must be taken, he urges, when partitioning disks to avoid misalignment and degraded performance. Using full LUNs is preferred.

12 Apr 2010 Auto Service Request and Network Services for Sun Systems and Storage [23026]
Helps Improve System Availability, Save Time, and Reduce Costs

Auto Service Request (ASR) is a secure, scalable, customer-installable software feature of warranty and SunSpectrum support that provides auto-case generation when specific hardware faults occur in Sun systems. For Sun storage, network services can be induced so specific services can be performed remotely in order to increase service availability, reduce administration time, maintain storage system performance, and manage data center environments more efficiently. To check which Sun products qualify, there is a wiki page for ASR Systems (servers) and a general product information page on network services for Storage products.
