HDS adds midrange disk arrays

Hitachi Data Systems has signed three major distributors (Wyle, Tech Data, and Gates Arrow) and a number of VARs to sell its recently introduced Freedom Storage 5840 disk array, a midrange member of the Freedom series. Capacity ranges from 36GB to 360GB, and six subsystems can be mounted in one rack for a total capacity of more than 2TB. The array features online microcode updates and a TurboLUN feature that locks frequently accessed data in cache. For storage area network implementations, the 5840 supports Fibre Channel fabric login. Pricing starts at $20,000.
