STK adds Fibre Channel arrays
Storage Technology`s 9140 disk array and 9145 RAID array, which the company OEMs from Data General`s Clariion unit, provide full Fibre Channel connectivity. The 9140 is a JBOD configuration that can be upgraded to the 9145 array, which is a RAID configuration with dual active Fibre Channel loops to the disk drives. Dual loops enable a theoretical throughput rate of 200MBps. The 9140 starts at $18,000. The 9145, which began shipping last month, starts at $92,000. www.storagetek.com.
