IBM® Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) is a Scale Out NAS offering designed to manage vast repositories of information in enterprise environments requiring very large capacities, high levels of performance, and high availability.
The IBM SONAS appliance provides a range of reliable, scalable storage solutions for a variety of storage requirements. These capabilities are achieved by using network access protocols such as NFS, CIFS, HTTPS, FTP, and SCP. Using built-in RAID technologies, all data is well protected with options to add additional protection through mirroring, replication, snapshots, and backup. These storage systems are also characterized by simple management interfaces that make their installation, administration, and troubleshooting uncomplicated and straightforward.
This IBM Redbooks® publication is the companion to the IBM Redbooks publication, SONAS Concepts, Architecture, and Planning Guide, SG24-7963. It is intended for storage administrators who have ordered their SONAS solution and are ready to install, customize, and use it. A quick start scenario takes you through common SONAS administration tasks to familiarize you with the SONAS system through the GUI and CLI. Backup and availability scenarios as well as best practices for setting up and troubleshooting hints and tips are included.
