Effective January 14, 2012 IBM has withdrawn from marketing the IBM System Storage EXP3000 enclosure. On or after the effective date of withdrawal, you can no longer order these products directly from IBM. You can obtain the products on an as-available basis through IBM Business Partners.
The IBM System Storage EXP3000 has been replaced by IBM System Storage EXP2500 Express.
The EXP2500 Express is a replacement for the EXP3000 when a storage enclosure is required for direct connection to IBM System x® and BladeCenter® servers.
