IBM Builds Storage Arrays from 1TB DrivesBy Chris Preimesberger | Posted 2008-02-12 Email Print
IBM introduces second-generation disk and tape systems for large and small data centers.
IBM has made its first storage product
news since last October by announcing Feb. 12 a wide range of new
software and hardware offerings for large enterprises and for small and midsize
The key item here is that IBM is now using 1TB drives in its storage arrays, following similar moves by Network Appliance, EMC, Rackable Systems and other competitors.
The new packages enable IBM-centric storage shops to upgrade their existing tiered-storage infrastructures, improve data security and enhance their archives to meet compliance requirements, Charlie Andrews, IBM's worldwide product manager for System Storage, told eWEEK.
