EMC, Microsoft Team On Groundbreaking SQL Server SANs

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

Industry Leaders Develop 45 Terabyte SAN; EMC Automated Networked Storage Technology Provides Foundation for SQL Server Labs

Technology industry leaders EMC Corporation and Microsoft Corp. have teamed to develop the largest Microsoft SQL Server storage area network (SAN) ever built. The joint engineering activity, conducted at Microsoft's SQL Server Labs in Redmond, Wash., resulted in a 45-terabyte configuration that included a simulated 10-terabyte human genomics database. The project highlights the scalability and flexibility of SQL Server 2000 and will be used to showcase total-cost-of-ownership, management and performance benefits of large-scale automated networked storage environments.

Microsoft's SQL Server Labs utilize more than 100 terabytes of EMC Symmetrix(R) and CLARiiON(R)-based storage, EMC Connectrix(TM) switches and directors and EMC software. The EMC Automated Networked Storage environment serves as the primary storage platform for all new SQL Server development and testing. EMC technology is used for performance and functionality testing, stress testing, customer load and playback testing as well as scalability, reliability and integration.
