The SPANStor-SE includes up to 180GB of hot-swappable RAID capacity at an entry-level price of $14,000, or $0.20 per MB. SPANStor-FT includes dual Pentium II processors and full redundancy for $25,000. The GT model has an entry-level price of $38,000 and includes up to four Pentium IIs and as much as one terabyte of capacity.
