Some quick news for Sun worshippers. Emulex has announced that its HBAnyware HBA management stack is now available for the SAN Foundation Software for Solaris 10, 9 and 8 operating systems.
The combination lets you simplify HBA configuration and operation, particularly on Emulex' LightPulse line, with boot-code upgrade options and driver-compatibility across multiple generations. It also provides local and remote management using in-band and out-of-band connection anywhere on the SAN.
Third-party, single-pane management solutions also can be brought into the fold through a number of upward integration capabilities that let the HBAnyware software act as an extension of overall enterprise server and storage management stacks.
Sun and Emulex certainly are no strangers to each other. Emulex HBAs are used for SAN connectivity across a range of Sun systems, including SunFire, Netra, SunBlade and StorageTek.
