Xiotech's ISE price cut

Like a cash back but a discount

Xiotech has a special offer; it will cough up $1,000 per TB of old Fibre Channel or SAS disks you junk in favour of an ISE system. If you want to trade up from SATA drives you get $500/TB.

There's no limit, Xiotech says, to the amount that can be traded in. You don't get your hands on the actual cash, as it is used to lower the cost of the ISE storage you are buying. More details here.

Xiotech offered a Cash for Clunkers a year ago, as did other suppliers like Pillar Data. It looks like this month is discount month. Last year's Xiotech offer finished at the end of September '09. So far this offer is open-ended. ®
