"Just a week after merger talks with IBM (NYSE: IBM) reportedly fell apart, Sun showed it remains focused on business with a host of new server, storage and network offerings.

"The new Sun Lustre Storage System is the high-end complement to the Sun Storage 7000 product lineup unveiled last fall.

"Based on the Lustre file system, Sun Fire X4250 and X4540 servers and Sun Storage J4400 and J4200 arrays, it scales capacity from 48 terabytes to multiple petabytes and I/O throughput from 1 GB per second to more than 100 GB per second.

"Sun said the new storage system simplifies Lustre deployment with pre-defined metadata server and object storage server configurations that offer the "best performance at the most economical price point available for a Lustre deployment." The system distributes files across a cluster of servers and storage using the pre-defined modules."
