MTI introduces array foundation
MTI Technology continues its push into software and services, but has also added a new series of disk arrays that can be combined with its DataServices hardware/software offerings. Called Vivant, the series encompasses three arrays:
The Vivant V10 is a 40-inch cabinet that supports up to 1.2TB. A 70-inch version can be configured with up to 3TB. Using hub-based Fibre Channel connections, administrators can connect up to four heterogeneous hosts using the Data-Shield volume mapping technology.
The V20 is a midrange member with redundant switched Fibre Channel connections, up to 3TB capacity, and support for as many as 10 heterogeneous hosts.
The high-end V30 can be configured with dual RAID elements, up to 9.6TB, and 35 host connections.
Pricing starts at $173,000 for a 218GB configuration.
