Sun Storage 7410 in evaluation at OpenSRS

Rick Yazwinski of OpenSRS/Tucows wrote an interesting piece about the Sun Storage 7410 - “Testing Sun’s Open Storage Platform” a while ago:

We start with Bonnie++, a tried and true disk subsystem benchmark suite. It’s interesting to note here that the Toro (Sun 7410) was very comparable to a Netapp 3040 in performance and beat the 3040 in many of the tests.


I’ll close with a reiteration of my opening: I’m really impressed with this platform. Sun’s done an amazing job, and the Open Storage platform is going to shake the (largely ridiculously overpriced) enterprise storage market to its core. Keep up the great work!
