In addition, SMBs most often have less capital to invest in stor-

age infrastructure than do their larger counterparts. So with less
to spend, SMBs need to get more for their buying dollar. Facing
these constraints of staff and finances, an SMB must find a
storage solution that is cost effective and easy to implement
and maintain, yet at the same time able to fulfill all of the storage requirements of the business to the same rigorous standards as those found in large enterprises.
When considering their storage needs, SMBs often consider
ease of use, flexibility, cost efficiency and support. IBM offers
SMBs a wide range of storage options that can help meet
these four critical requirements using its Express Advantage™
offerings. Express Advantage solutions include a comprehensive line of hardware, software, services and financing solutions
designed specifically to address the business challenges of the
SMB marketplace. These solutions are easy to install and
deploy, easy to manage, easy to buy, and are priced for midsized businesses.

Systems are based on dual clustered storage
controllers. Divide all numbers by one-half if a
single storage controller system is ordered.
A single controller can be easily upgraded to a
dual controller system as your computing needs
increase. The dual controller is a fully redundant
system and is designed to provide failover and
failback capabilities.
