Sun StorageTek 5800 System SDK Reference Manual

Introduction to the Open Edition Software

The 5800 system open edition software mimics the behavior of a 5800 system server. This feature enables you to test software being developed for a 5800 system without having to access a 5800 system server. The open edition software stores all data and metadata on the local hard drive. This data is by default stored in the openedition/var directory.
