Hello all,

Interested in comparing performance characteristics of Storage Foundation to Solaris ZFS from the comfort of your own desk?  Check out this updated white paper at

Here is a brief introduction:

This whitepaper compares how Veritas Storage Foundation and Solaris ZFS perform for commercial workloads.
The paper describes not only the raw performance numbers, but also the system and storage resources
required to achieve those numbers. 

Pure performance numbers are interesting, but what is often ignored is how much CPU time, memory or I/O
to disk was required to reach that number. In a performance benchmark situation, the resources used are less
relevant, but for sizing server and storage infrastructure in the data center it is vital information. To see the
bigger picture both performance numbers and resource utilization need to be considered.
