Today IBM announced the DCS3700, a highly dense storage system ideally suited to Big Data applications.
IBM has combined highly available, dense storage capabilities and the proven System Storage disk controllers in the DCS3700. With up to 60 SAS drives in just 4U of rack space, it can reduce operational costs for capacity-intensive applications. With up to 4,000 megabytes per second (MBps) in sustained drive reads, the DCS3700 storage system is equally adept at delivering throughput to bandwidth-intensive applications and input and output per second (IOPS) to databases, Microsoft Exchange and other applications. With its simple, efficient and flexible approach to storage, the DCS3700 is a cost-effective, fully integrated complement to IBM System x servers, IBM BladeCenter and IBM Power Systems.
