After Sun STK5800 (Honeycomb)
STK5800 Network-attached storage (NAS) Raw capacity: 26 tb; usable: ~22 tb Mean time to data loss: ~1.4 million years EOL’ed… Opensource software being developed by a third party: Dewstream > TierraCloud
SAM-FS Sun Storage Archive Manager Policy-place data placement Continuous backup
Parameters and bottlenecks Preservables vs keepables vs backup How far offsite, and how to get it there?
Concerns Heavy-duty infrastructure – spinning disks use lots of power and create lots of heat Successor to the STK5800 Preservation of metadata: how do you preserve it if it won’t hold still? Staffing: appropriate level of monitoring and checking
