Build a file server using OpenSolaris, iSCSI, ZFS and StorageTek AVS

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I2admin.com has a really interesting article describing how they set up a webserver farm using OpenSolaris, iSCSI, ZFS and StorageTek.

All you need is:

  • 2 servers for the file servers.
  • A dedicated gig switch.
  • 2 iSCSI chassis.
  • A spare gig nic in each of the servers you want to hook into the storage.
  • 2 4 port gig nic’s for the file servers.
  • OpenSolaris

Well I have just finished deploying a solution like this for a large web server farm and thought it would be nice to share what we did and how it worked with the larger community. When researching this solution there was quite a lot of information out there but it was all in different contexts and none of it directly related to each other.
