JR5 96TB running OpenSolaris 2009.06

Scalable Informatics JackRabbit OpenSolaris pr0n for those disposed to such things. Remember, this is a 2.5+ GB/s machine (e.g. measured bandwidth on RAID6, not “theoretical bandwidth” with a RAID0).

From what I can see, this is the largest (capacity) and fastest (raw and usable) performance OpenSolaris machine on the market. 8 Nehalem cores, 72 GB RAM, 96TB raw, 72TB usable in 5U, for under $60k USD, with 10GbE and/or Infiniband.

There does appear to be some strangeness upon setup … Solaris was not willing to run on a > 2TB disk. Looks like a label issue (identical in some ways to the msdos vs gpt label issue). Nor did it like the on-board SATA. It is running on a USB2 connected Seagate drive. I may take a picture of this and post it … it is at least a little amusing.

Ok, onto the pr0n-pics.
