ZFS Storage Appliance Models

ZFS Storage Appliances – Models (Part 3 of 6)


>> Mick:  There are three basic model ranges – the 7120, 7320, and 7420 – the 7420 being the top of the food chain as it were, which can store up to 1.15 petabytes of data. Starting with the 7120, anything from 20 terabytes up to the physical capacity of that system.


Each model can be expanded with additional disk shelves, additional flash storage. Obviously, it can be configured in the first place with the correct type of disks that you need to be using. As you can see here, the 7120 uses 7200 rpm disks, while the 7320 and 7420 can also use 15K SAS disks.


Also the higher end models can be configured in clusters failover. Some very advanced features there. Every protocol that you need for file sharing is present as we’ll see during the demonstration.


The system upgrade expose both as a nasty [1:22 inaudible] in network attached storage and the [1:25 inaudible]. So you can do FibreChannel and you can do NFS, whatever you need. And you can add extra devices for input/output. By default, the system has four 1 gig Ethernet interfaces which is pretty standard on most Oracle servers and appliances, but you can add another quad card, gigabit card, Infinibands, 10 gig Ethernet, which I’ve lots of mention here and also a FibreChannel HBOs. Obviously, the capacity options vary according to the model.
