We just installed our new OpenStorage from Sun, consisting of an X7310 RAID (zfs) Storage Controller and a 4400 JBOD case (for SAS).

The X7310 has a 10 GE Ethernet card installed additionally, the lower half is filled with 11 1TB SATA disks and a 16 GB log flash device.

Sun OpenStorage appliances are special OpenSolaris versions installed with a web (and terminal) interface to configure ZFS file systems and block devices (ZVOL) to share them via iSCSI, NFS and CIFS to other SAN members.
