Internet Security Threat Report 2014

IBM has introduced an initiative in conjunction with its partner Storage Tek aimed at exploiting storage opportunities arising from European Monetary Union (EMU). Big Blue said that customers will now only pay for storage capacity that is required, irrespective of how much storage is installed. SnapCapacity Storage for enterprise systems is aimed at large corporate users who need greater flexibility to decide how much storage they require, IBM said. That initiative was introduced last March. Now Big Blue has introduced SnapCapacity, which allows 500Gb of effective storage capacity, including a 2Gb cache, within the Ramac virtual array. Customers will now only pay for the storage capacity they use, said IBM. ® While IBM and its bitter competitor EMC disagree on many topics, including technology, both are agreed that EMU is a big opportunity for storage manufacturers. Large companies, such as Marks and Spencer, are installing dual systems to cope with both local currencies and the Euro and so need double the storage capacity. The IBM offer is available to customers ordering 160, 290, or 420Gb. They will be offered a 500Gb array with the 2Gb of cache at no extra cost until 31st of January 2000. At that point, customers will either pay for the product or IBM will, it said, physically reduce the effective storage capacity of the unit.
