We are looking into ZFS storage appliance to replace it as a enterprise
storage system (a portion of the consumption will for oracle DBs). If anyone
is using ZFS, would please share some feedback on how the experience is been
and any PROs and CONs?
Our reason behind picking this platform is HCC, compression and replication
features. ZFS's contender is a storage system like IBM XIV or similar..
Thanks in advance
I am using ZFS storage appliance and it is extremely easy to administer and
use. I had no problems whatsoever with it. It supports NFS, iSCSI and FC right
off the bat. My only worry is that it runs Solaris and Solaris is in the
process of being murdered, as well as SPARC processors and most of the storage
hardware. In other words, there may be no ZFS appliance this time next year.
I'm sure that IBM will profit the most from the demise of SUN. For the
connoisseurs, Illumos will survive, but will probably not be a supported
platform for Oracle RDBMS.
