IBM steams into fibre channel

SMB MOR FC

In brief IBM is to launch new 4Gb/s fibre channel mid-range storage kit. The announcement comes after EMC unveiled its own 4Gb/s Clariion updates on Monday.

IBM says the new DS4700 Express offers SMBs front to backend 4Gb/s fibre channel support, lowering data backup, transfer, copying, and restoration costs.

Storage VP Kristie Bell trilled: "The DS4700 Express hits the sweet spot for response time and performance by offering customers an outstanding, affordable midrange option."

The DS4700 will be available from 9 June and is listed at $19,449. ®
