IBM 1726-HC4 IBM DS3400 System Storage Dual Controller
IBM System Storage DS3000 series is a new family of storage enclosures from IBM. The DS3000 series is specifically designed to address the needs of the small and medium businesses. The DS3300, DS3400, and EXP3000 Express models combine popular options that can enable users to easily create their storage configurations. With many small business IT departments having one or a part-time administrator, and limited time to spend on data management, the DS3000 series can be easily installed without extensive knowledge or effort.
The DS3000 Storage Manager software was designed for easy implementation for an unseasoned administrator. The task-oriented management interface of the DS3000 Storage Manager presents tasks to the administrator first, and then asks which object to perform the task on. Thus, the management application’s task-oriented interface removes the resistance that many organizations have with moving to an external storage solution. The scalability of the DS3000 series helps allow businesses to respond to their constantly changing storage environment. By starting small, the DS3000 series is designed to allow users to make additional investments in their infrastructure, only when their data growth necessitates it. The DS3000 series capacity is increased by either adding hard disk drives or by expanding the configuration by adding EXP3000 expansion units. Both of these operations can be done without having to shut down the storage enclosure. This helps lessen impact to your environment and gives users control of their data storage as they expand capacity on an as-needed basis.
The DS3000 series is a comprehensive storage solution for IBM System x and BladeCenter servers. This flexibility helps you to break free of server barriers and use a single storage solution across your environment. With many functionality and availability features that come standard, and a price-point that does not strain the budget, the DS3000 series is the simple choice for the small and medium-sized businesses. Many other storage products require the purchase of expensive options for basic storage configurations. The DS3000 series is a complete out-of-the-box solution designed to satisfy most storage needs.
