As midsize businesses show increasing interest in storage area networks (SAN), SAN developers are more eager to help them take the plunge. Adaptec Inc. this week at the Intel Developer Forum, in San Jose, California, will show its first IP-enabled storage arrays, with native IP connections and Serial Aï A drives, said Tim Connolly, director of external storage for the company. The iSA1500 will fit in a 1.75-inch rack and hold 1 terabyte. The iSA4500 will fit in a 3.5-inch rack, hold 3 terabytes and have high-availability features. For its part, EMC Corp. next week will unveil software that improves usability and management of its Clariion arrays, said sources close to the storage company. The software includes VisualSRM, based on technology obtained via the acquisition of Astruni Software Corp. by EMC Corp., for policy automation and reporting, and VisualSAN. INSET: Year of the mainstream SAN.
