IBM System Storage DCS3860

Highlights

Every day, massive volumes of data are created around the world. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals, to name a few. To effectively leverage this big data, organisations need fast, easy access to applications—backed by high-performance storage architectures. At the same time, they need ways to improve operational efficiency while maintaining the same data centre footprint, quality of service and high availability.

The IBM® System Storage® DCS3860 storage system delivers the performance and scalability organisations need to succeed in this new era of big data. Designed for high-performance computing applications, the DCS3860 system supports up to 60 drives in just 4U of rack space—and it can scale up to 360 drives, including up to 24 solid-state drives (SSDs), with the attachment of five expansion units. This high-density system also helps make the most of today’s IT budgets by increasing capacity while reducing the storage footprint, power consumption and related operational costs.
