The Sun Storage 6580 Array supports 256 drives, is upgradable, and is compatible with other members of the modular portfolio. Users can mix SATA and Fibre Channel drives to design a tiered storage environment with centralized management and integrated data services for business continuity.

Architected to provide high reliability and availability, the Sun Storage 6580 offers redundant components; automated I/O path failover; and extensive online configuration, reconfiguration, and maintenance capabilities designed to ensure that your data is available 24x7. In addition, RAID 6 technology guards against concurrent drive failures and errors and persistent cache backup to ensure that any data in cache is captured and safe in the event of a power outage.

The SMIS-compliant Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) software is the array’s browser-based, application-oriented management interface. Accessible from anywhere with the use of a secure internet connection, the Sun Storage CAM software includes built-in performance tracking and automated diagnostics so users can focus on precise, predictable, and repeatable results.
