IBM Total Storage DS4800

The IBM System Storage DS4800 disk storage system offers customers a 4 Gbps SAN solution to take advantage of the performance offered by 4 Gbps technology. There are two ways to measure performance of an SAN device: Megabytes per second (MBps) and input/output per second (IOPS). The IBM DS4800 4 Gbps SAN product has very impressive performance numbers. It is designed to offer up to 1724 MBps throughput with up to 575,000 IOPS. A 2 Gbps storage array can require up to twice as many host ports as a 4 Gbps array to deliver the throughput of four 4 Gbps ports. This frees up ports in the SAN for each array.
