Do you know of the best way of performing RAID with Sun hardware?
I've got a buddy who is looking for a way to have duplicated data for his workstations, possibly using RAID 1 for mirroring so that each drive is standalone and able to be bootable without all the other drives attached that may use parity.
For Hardware solutions, I pointed him to:
A PCI RAID card for e250's and e450's (part number X6542A).
The A3500 which is a separate unit with a RAID controller built in.
The A1000 is an all in one disk and RAID controller solution.
On the software side:
Disksuite (included w/solaris)
Veritas / Sun Enterprise Volume Manager
Sun Hardware RAID Storage Systems Administration
As always, for system specific information, I'd check out: http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Systems/
and if all else fails, http://supportforum.sun.com.
Any experts with RAID using Sun Hardware have any tips?
