Designed to deliver advanced functionality at a breakthrough price, these systems provide an exceptional solution for workgroup storage applications such as email, file, print and Web servers, as well as collaborative databases and remote boot for diskless servers.
IBM has combined best-of-breed development with leading host interface and drive technology in the IBM System Storage DS3500 Express. With next-generation 6 Gbps SAS back-end and host technology, you have a seamless path to consolidated and efficient storage—improving performance, flexibility, scalability, data security and ultra-low power consumption—while not sacrificing simplicity, affordability, or availability.
The EXP3500 drive enclosures are 2U cabinet-mountable 6 Gbps enclosures designed to support a total of twelve 3.5-inch SAS drives (EXP3512) or twenty-four 2.5-inch SAS drives (EXP3524)—achieving up to a maximum raw capacity of 36 TB in a single enclosure. IBM’s legacy in best-of-breed development, in conjunction with next-generation 6 Gbps SAS drive technology, enables the EXP3500 expansion enclosures to deliver rack optimization, power savings, reliability and performance.
EXP2500 external disk enclosure is a cost-effective, fully integrated Storage complement to IBM® System x® and IBM BladeCenter® servers. Offering substantial improvements at a price that will fit most budgets, the EXP2500 delivers superior price to performance ratios, functionality, scalability and ease-of-use for the entry-level storage user.
