Taking Advantage of Multicore/Multiprocessor Technologies to Meet Today’s Storage Needs

File attachment: 

Data growth is not only driving up storage costs, but also transforming performance and efficiency requirements for storage systems. IDC estimated that in 2011, the amount of information created and replicated would surpass 1.8 zettabytes (1.8 trillion gigabytes) — growing by a factor of nine in just five years. This digital data is expected to grow 29X over the current decade, reaching 35,000 exabytes by 2020.

Oracle and Intel, as part of a broad strategic alliance, have been working together to ensure that Sun ZFS Storage Appliances are optimized to meet these challenges by unleashing the power and capabilities of current and future Intel® Xeon® processors. A key result of this collaboration has been the optimized use of the Oracle Solaris operating system as the foundation upon which the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance has been built. Oracle Solaris has long been optimized for Intel Xeon processors, and Sun ZFS Storage Appliances leverage these significant optimizations as well as many other innovations in the world’s leading enterprise operating system.
