As a business matures, so does the amount of data and the value of the data that it holds within the organization. If the data is distributed across servers and individual storage systems, the business will face increased cost and complexity along with the accompanying business risks.

The IBM System Storage™ DS3400 Express leads the way for these organizations to take advantage of consolidating and sharing this data within a direct-attach or FC SAN solution. The DS3400 Express adds the most advanced front-end 4 Gbps FC technology to IBM time-proven designs for enterprise-class RAID storage. With FC host connectivity and SAS back-end technology, the DS3400 Express is designed to improve productivity through data consolidation, availability, performance and scalability.
