I recently started a new job. Horay for me! It's been a lot of work to get to a position where I am the head admin (read: only) of a small-ish company. I am diving in in the documenting and discovery phase of how this network is setup. I have gotten the basics of what systems are where, what servers do what, and how their previous admin integrated everything. I am now diving in to their "SANs" trying to get the data replicating between our home office and co-location going. And that brings me to my question
Does anyone here have any experience with Nexenta? From what I have been able to find it's basically an integrated solution designed to turn commodity hardware into networked storage. Their documentation seems...lacking. Most of it is of the "click these buttons to do this thing" variety. Very little of it is a high level overview of what the language means, or how various configurations function. My Google-fu is failing me, as most of the training resources I've been able to find are either very low quality or ridiculously expensive. The company is a not-for-profit, and is going into a cash strapped year, but they provide an excellent service that does help a lot of less fortunate people out. I am open to paid for classes or materials but would greatly prefer any kind of free documentation (no matter how dull). Also, if it is relevant, they do have the paid version with moderate support. They have been less than stellar responding to my requests but if their is something available that route that is an option too.
