NFS Server Performance and Tuning Guide for Sun Hardware

Sun StorEdge MultiPack

The Sun StorEdge MultiPack enclosure, which is Fast Wide SCSI, can adapt to 50-pin or narrow hosts. It is self-terminating but it can be chained with units that require external termination.

The Sun StorEdge MultiPack uses single connector disks and it is hot plugable. The enclosure can either contain from two to six 1.5-inch disk drives or from two to twelve 1-inch disk drives. To accommodate from two to twelve 1-inch disk drives you must use an SBus SCSI host adapter.

This unit is an excellent RAID solution for desktop servers when you use the unit with Sun StorEdge Volume Manager or Solstice DiskSuite. You can also use the Sun StorEdge MultiPack with the Netra NFS server for fast and reliable network attached storage.
