IBM Unveils High-Bandwidth Storage System For SMBs

IBM announced the IBM System Storage DS4700 Express, a high-bandwidth storage system featuring front- to back-end 4 Gbps technology.

Aimed at and priced for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the new midrange storage system is designed for clients who need faster access to their business critical information.

The IBM System Storage DS4700 Express series is designed to provide users with increased connectivity, including 16 disk drive bays inside the controller and up to 8 host ports, reducing the need for a switch to be incorporated into the network. To handle up to 112 disk drives, customers have the option of attaching either the EXP710 or the recently announced EXP810 expansion unit to the back-end. Available in two versions, the Model 70 and Model 72 feature different amounts of cache and number of host ports. Also, a new 4Gb disk drive option (15,000 RPM) is available on the DS4700.

The DS4700 is fully-enabled with DACstore technology, which enables dynamic, data-intact portability on every drive in the subsystem. It is also designed to provide end-to-end 4 Gbps-capable support when using the new System p5 single and dual port 4 Gbps Fibre Channel HBA available in both AIX 5L and Linux on Power.

The 4 Gbps Fibre Channel interfaces are designed to auto negotiate down to 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps for backward compatibility. It can also be upgraded to the DS4800.

The products announced today will be available starting June 9, 2006. The IBM System Storage DS4700 is available with starting list prices of $19,449. The pricing includes a 3-year warranty on hardware and software.
