With more than 1 million potential users, IDEAL necessitates a heavy-duty storage infrastructure. At the heart of that infrastructure are two Network Appliance FAS3020 file servers, each hosting 7T bytes of structured and unstructured data. An open source MySQL database, which runs on two Sun Fire v40z servers, hosts the IDEAL data repository. The NetApp file servers and Sun database servers connect via ASU's Gigabit Ethernet network, to which the filers connect using iSCSI. ASU hosts the IDEAL application servers and portal software on five Linux-based IBM xSeries 336 servers, and relies on switches from Cisco and F5 Networks for load balancing and network connectivity.
