Data General?s Clariion division last month introduced the FC5700 disk array, which packs as many as 120 (9GB or 18GB) Fibre Channel disk drives and includes redundant components, such as power supplies, link control cards, fans, and storage processors. Clariion rates the processors at up to 30,000 I/Os per second. Pricing starts at $50,000.
