7. Conclusion

The Sun Storage 7110 server we tested made the brilliant demonstration of its velocity and was easy to configure. Solaris and its ZFS filesystem using the full power of the hardware. At $10 995, you will not regret your investment. It will be very difficult to find the bottleneck of the server moreover it will keep your files safe.

We recommend this model for a group of 20 to 200 users.

We will keep in mind its lack of advanced features (CIFS, UPS support...) and the disturbing technical choices (DNS, security ...). However it was impossible for us to find major defects in this concentrate of technology , we will miss hearing it after the end of the trial period.
