IBM has enhanced its storage offerings for SMBs. The aim of the enhancements is to bring enterprise-level capabilities to a broad group of storage users.
The move affects a range of products across IBM's System Storage DS4000 Series, a scalable storage system designed to accommodate the changing value of data over time, while maintaining data availability.
Enhancements include DS4000 EXP810, a new 4gbps expansion unit for increased density and capacity; automated back-up and restore processes developed exclusively for Microsoft Exchange; and Microsoft Simple San designation for the IBM System Storage DS4100 and DS4300.
In addition, IBM has introduced new feature codes for disaster recovery and business continuity, which are designed to help protect email storage as well as other mission critical data.
