Oracle Sun ZFS Storage Appliance Review

Price per GB is very cheap, but we have had issues with uptime

What is most valuable?

  • Very good analytics
  • Very easy to configure.
  • We share the same file system with Unix and Windows.

How has it helped my organization?

The ease of setting up replication got every one of our servers replicated.

What needs improvement?

Uptime. We had some crashes here and there. The good news is the failover is very quick and most servers do not feel it. For example, a VM server may hang for a minute, but it will recover once it failed over.

For how long have I used the solution?

About five years now, first using the 7310.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Some, but oracle support was very helpful.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Very responsive.

Technical Support:

Very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, because this simplified our NFS and CIFS storage environments

How was the initial setup?

Yes, it is very easy to configure.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented using an in-house team.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Price per GB is very cheap.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
