Sun Delivers 10 Terabyte NAS Appliance
Sun Microsystems, Inc. today introduced the Sun StorEdge(TM) N8400 and N8600 Network Attached Storage (NAS) filers. The Sun StorEdge N8000 filer series scales from 200 gigabytes to over 10 TB of usable capacity in a standalone configuration.
Sun also announced today that the Sun StorEdge N8400 and N8600 filers have successfully completed the Oracle Storage Compatibility Program (OSCP) NAS test suite for Oracle database environments. With OSCP qualification awarded in February to the Sun StorEdge N8200 filer, the entire filer series has now been qualified for seamless integration with datacenters running Oracle databases.
"We have leveraged proven Sun technology to deliver superior NAS solutions that are reliable and easy to implement," said Denise Shiffman, vice president of marketing for Sun Network Storage. "With this announcement, we are continuing to execute on our open storage networks strategy. Earlier this year, we delivered customer-ready SAN solutions that are easy to deploy and use in all major operating system environments. Now we are extending our NAS line to over 10 TBs, while delivering an open solution that provides file services to Solaris(TM), UNIX and Windows NT."
The Sun StorEdge N8000 filers are now shipping with list prices starting from $53,800.
