Following a similar move by Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu Siemens has announced a packaged storage area network product aimed at small and medium-size businesses.
The bundle will comprise Fujitsu Siemens’ FibreCAT SX RAID storage devices, switches from Brocade and host bus adapters from Emulex.
Business-class data protection has traditionally been expensive and difficult to deploy, so many smaller businesses have shied away from SANs.
The bundled product, which customers can order under a single part number, aims to cut down on the complexity of choosing components to put together a SAN.
It also aims to simplify installation and operation, according to Fujitsu Siemens.
