MTIs Vivant D-100 provides IT managers with a flexible DAS product that is capable of being upgraded to meet future SAN needs.
LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Over the long haul, the D-100 should yield a solid return on investment because it is highly scalable and can be upgraded and added to future SAN implementations. Provides flexibility and scalability; design includes plenty of redundancy. Firmware requires that LUNs be deleted in the opposite order from which they were created; management interface needs to be streamlined. MTI Corp., Anaheim, Calif.; (800) 999-9684; www.mti.com
SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The D-100, like most Fibre Channel-based RAID units, is a little pricey compared with SCSI units and so will initially take a big bite out of the budget.
