As a business matures, so does the amount of data and the value it holds within the organisation. If the data is distributed across servers and individual storage systems, the business will face increased cost, complexity and the accompanying business risks.
The IBM System Storage DS3400 leads the way for these organisations to take advantage of consolidating and sharing this data within a direct-attach or Storage Area Network (SAN) solution. With SAS and SATA drive intermix support, the DS3400 can be optimised with the right workload demand utilising the appropriate drive technology. The DS3400 offers the opportunity to meet the demands of data expansion, data availability and flexibility in a simple, affordable disk system.
Select configurations of the DS3400 are part of the IBM Express Portfolio, designed and priced to meet the needs of mid-sized businesses. The Express models combine the DS3400 storage system with the FC cables and Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers to help you get started with storage quickly.
