Solaris Gains Virtual HBA Tools

Arthur Cole

Solaris 10 users will be pleased to know that they now have access to Emulex' Virtual HBA technology using the StorageTek version of the 4 Gb LightPulse device.

 

Known in Sun circles as the StorageTek Enterprise Class 4 Gbps PCI Express HBA, the LightPulse adapter with the Virtual HBA system brings increased functionality to Solaris Containers through virtual port management and other tools found on the HBAnyware management suite.

 

Users will also be able to set up each virtual machine with its own protected storage. The system uses the NPIV standard to tap into a host of SAN management tools, including fabric zoning and LUN mapping and masking.

 

Mixed environments will benefit as well, as the HBAnyware suite is compatible across Microsoft, VMware, Linux and Xen platforms.
