IBM has announced two storage and server products aimed at smaller data centers that use x86-based commodity-type arrays, System x mainframe systems or both. As reported on eWeek, the entry-level DS3500 Express is a starter storage system that provides multiple connectivity options—Fibre Channel, iSCSI and SAS—enabling storage administrators to deploy tiered storage networks.

The new System x3620 M3 Express runs on Intel's latest Xeon multicore processors and is optimized for storage-intensive workloads.

"Tiered networks, addition to filtering out unnecessary data and files that slow up traffic, also provide immediate access to timely business data so it can be used for internal corporate analytics if needed.

"System x3620 M3 Express, a higher-performance system that runs on Intel's latest Xeon multi-core processors, features faster I/O throughput and is optimized for storage-intensive workloads, such as data and files from social networking sites, surveillance video installation and transaction processing, IBM said. The x3620 also includes integrated RAID adapters for disaster protection and higher data availability.

"Pricing information, dependent upon number of arrays and overall capacity, is available upon consultation with IBM Global Services. Both systems are available at this time, IBM said."
