IBM DS4100 array info.

Recommended Posts

I was shopping around for a storage array for my IT dept @ UPenn. The DS4100 uses 250GB 7200Rpm SATA drives. Does it make any sense that they would cost $519 a pop when drives like the Hitachi T7K250 and 7K250s cost less that $200 a pop?

I'd consider that pretty cheap. I've seen pricing on iSeries 4.x gig hard drives that normally sell for a hundred bucks or so. IBM wanted over $2000 a drive.
