AMDAHL TRIES TO CORNER CLUSTERED WINDOWS NT STORAGE MARKET

By CBR Staff Writer

Meanwhile, Amdahl Corp has been making additions to its LVS family of storage systems products, aiming them at the growing market for clustered systems running Microsoft Corp.’s Windows NT. The LVS 4100 is designed to meet the needs of customers who require the level of performance that is generated from the high- end LVS series hardware at a departmental server level. The Sunnyvale, California-based company believes that the demand for storage products for the Windows NT market is building fast, and therefore saw the need for an entry level package. The LVS 4100 has a starting capacity of 13Gb with 91Gb of RAID capable storage, and can be upgraded to an LVS 4500 which is capable of scaling to multiple terabytes of storage. There are two versions of the product; the JBOD, Just a Bunch Of Disks, which doesn’t have a RAID processor and has a starting price of $9,115. The fully configured RAID version, which frees the CPU from the need to do the RAID group recovery in the event of a device failure, starts at $23,000. Amdahl claims there has been a lot of interest, and is confident the LVS 4100 will be a big success.
