To address soaring demand from users for more powerful storage solutions, Silicon Graphics (NYSE: SGI) today unveiled the SGI(R) InfiniteStorage TP9700 RAID storage array. This marks the industry’s first Fibre Channel storage array equipped with a 4Gb/second (gigabit per second) Fibre Channel interface, doubling the performance of SGI’s previous offerings. The increased performance of the TP9700 means that users need far less infrastructure — adapters, cabling, switch ports, etc. — to access and manage their storage. Bottom line, this results in lower cost of ownership and far simpler configurations to manage.
