Whitepaper: The Service Delivery Network: A case study

by Sun MicrosystemsMay 29, 2008

Using the SDN approach, organizations can reduce costs for example, by consolidating software instances and hardware, and sharing the infrastructure - while still providing a highly secure environment.

Whitepaper: Low Latency 5 Nine's Trading: Sun's Value Proposition for Market Data

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

To achieve the low latency and optimized trading efficiencies required in the algorithm-driven, post-Reg NMS/MiFID trading environment, firms need the unbeatable combination of the newest trading and market data systems running on Sun�s SPARC and/or x86 platforms. While this white paper discusses the advantages of Solaris 10 (versus Linux) in the context of creating an optimized market data system, the same value propositions can be applied in other areas of the trade process to create a low latency, high-availability trading environment.

Whitepaper: Enhancements in Sun Management Center 3.6.1 Software

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

Sun Management Center 3.6.1 continues the Sun tradition of providing comprehensive monitoring and management solutions for all the Sun systems in an enterprise. This release also expands monitoring and management into the realm of x86/x64 systems through the x86 config reader, which allows one to deploy the Sun Management Center server within a non-global zone. This paper published by Sun Microsystems highlights the prominent new features and enhancements in the Sun Management Center 3.6.1 software release.

Whitepaper: Solaris ZFS and Veritas Storage Foundation: File System Performance

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

This white paper describes the performance characteristics and differences of Solaris ZFS and the Veritas File System through a series of tests using the new Filebench benchmarking framework which reproduces the I/O patterns of applications, as well as the popular IOzone benchmark which tests specific I/O patterns. The results and supporting testing data described in this paper, try to give organizations sufficient detail on differences between Solaris ZFS and Veritas File System so that intelligent decisions can be made about when each technology could or should be used.

Whitepaper: A Sun Storage Technical Brief: Data Protection - The 8 Steps to Cutting IT Operating Costs Without Sacrificing Data Protection

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

Data classification, in tandem with an information lifecycle management strategy, is a critical step in the struggle to drive down IT operating costs. Key to information lifecycle management is the identification of the value of data and the assignment of the appropriate level of storage based on that value. Prioritizing data according to its critical value allows an IT organization to optimize data storage and realize potentially sizable cost savings. This paper published by Sun Microsystems highlights eight steps organization must tackle when classifying data on the way to implementing a more cost-effective Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solution.

Whitepaper: Federated Identity Management: The Foundation For Secure Large-Scale Outsourcing

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

Within the U.S. Federal government, greater productivity and strategic effectiveness are increasingly being realized by unlocking the full value of investments in information technology. This paper published by Oracle describes how ""Oracle Federal On Demand"" delivers a unique high security solution, designed to exceed the expectations of the U.S. Federal government, and enable all departments, agencies to readily comply with strict congressional mandates, and the needs of citizens at large.

Whitepaper: Open Text Livelink ECM Archive Server Integration With the Sun StorageTek5320 NAS Appliance

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

As the flow of information to and from businesses increase and both government and corporate regulations are part of everyday life, it becomes increasingly necessary to address the problem of data management. The problem is exponentially increased when corporations are required to meet government and corporate regulations. This white paper from SUN Microsystem explains the need of integration of, the Livelink ECM - Archive Server and the Sun StorageTek Compliance Archiving System which offer a tightly integrated, scalable platform for the full range of OpenText archiving solutions, which include solutions for archiving data from file systems, email & SAP.

Whitepaper: Accelerating Backup/Restore With Sun StorageTek Virtual Tape Library: Selecting an Optimized, Secure Configuration to Fit Your Environment

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

In most organizations, data users don’t generally care where their information is stored. They just want it to be protected and available at a moment’s notice. The choice to implement a Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solution is a simple one. This paper published by Sun Microsystems helps to choose the right VTL configuration for the business.

Whitepaper: Symantec Enterprise Vault

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

This paper from Sun Microsystems is designed to give technical staff, project managers, and file server experts an overview of Symantec Enterprise Vault File System Archiving (FSA). It is not intended to introduce File System Archiving to a non technical audience. File System Archiving retention folders provides a powerful new feature which allows administrators to define and implement customized folder structures which users can use for classifying their files based on corporate defined records retention policies. They also give the flexibility to assign exception policies to specific folders.

Whitepaper: Adaptive Data-Aware Utility-Based Scheduling in Resource-Constrained Systems

by Sun MicrosystemsJan 01, 2008

This paper from Sun Microsystems addresses the problem of dynamic scheduling of data-intensive multiprocessor jobs. Each job requires some number of CPUs and some amount of data that needs to be downloaded into a local storage space before starting the job. The completion of each job brings some benefit (utility) to the system, and the goal is to find the optimal scheduling policy that maximizes the average utility per unit of time obtained from all completed jobs. A co-evolutionary solution methodology is proposed, where the utility-based policies for managing local storage and for scheduling jobs onto the available CPUs mutually affect each other’s environments.
