IBM DS 4800 SAN ARCHITECTURE
Last week, I was delighted to see 3 racks containing a built-in SAN architecture based on IBM DS 4800. This is a scalable and high-performance storage for on demand computing environments.
It was connected into a datacenter with a 10 Gbps Fibre Channel interface technology. Every green light in the picture below represents a storage disk, which is valuable more than 1000 US$.
Therefore count the amount of green lights and you will have an approximate costs of this rack storage architecture.
