IBM Releases Slew of Storeage Related Systems and Software Features

So many things to talk about but a couple of notes of interest from today:

  1. DS8870 is a new system not just an upgrade. IBM went from the P6 server to the P7 which should give them a huge performance bump. I heard there are some impressive SPC numbers coming soon.
  2. XIV gets a GUI improvement with Multi-system manager. This will help drive some efficiency in management of those environments with larger deployments.
  3. V7000 Unified gets compression for file. Same story as on block but now for file objects.

Here are links to the hardware and software announcements from today.
