Product Information

IBM System Storage DS3524 Model C4A - Hard drive array - 24 bays ( SAS-2 ) - 0 x HD - Serial Attached SCSI 2 (external) - rack-mountable - 2U - Express Seller

The IBM System Storage DS3500 Express Storage Systems are the addition to the IBM System Storage DS3000 series family of entry disk storage systems. The DS3500 delivers affordable, entry-level configurations for small and medium businesses in compact 2U, 19-inch rack mount enclosures, with the flexibility to scale in capacity, performance, host interfaces, and functions as your business grows or requirements change.

The DS3500 combines next-generation controller technology with a 6 gigabit per second (Gb) SAS interconnect to the disk drives and high-performance host interface technologies - 6 Gb SAS and 8 Gb Fibre Channel (FC). In addition to 6 Gb SAS and 8 Gb FC host interfaces, the DS3500 also supports 1 Gb iSCSI. You can intermix FC or iSCSI concurrently with SAS, giving you the flexibility to address your shared storage requirements within a single system.

The DS3500 carries on the tradition of DS3000 series data protection features with support for multiple RAID levels, storage partitions to manage volume-to-host access, and FlashCopy and Volume Copy to create logical or physical copies of your data.
