MTIs Vivant D-100 provides IT managers with a flexible DAS product that is capable of being upgraded to meet future SAN needs.

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.

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.
