Sun adds high- capacity drives
Sun Microsystems has added 9GB and 18GB disk drives to its StorEdge A1000 and D1000 RAID arrays, which now scale from 16GB to 144GB per tray. With the recently announced StorEdge Expansion Rack, the arrays can scale up to 1.3TB. The A1000 uses controller-based RAID; the D1000 relies on host-based RAID.
Prices start at $14,195 for the A1000 and $10,195 for the D1000. Both are available for Solaris platforms; the A1000 will be available for Windows NT platforms later this year. www.sun.com.
