Disk array can work as a module or as a standalone

An entry-level disk array from SGI holds up to 584G in a 3.5-inch-high space.

The Total Performance 900 can serve as a standalone array or as a module in the company's new Origin 300 server, said Sylvia Crain, an SGI marketing manager.

The 3.5-inch rackmount TP900 holds up to eight disk drives connected to one or two Ultra160 SCSI channels, Crain said.

Users can populate the array with either 10,000-rpm 73G drives for large-capacity needs or 15,000-rpm 18G drives for streaming applications, Crain said. With SGI's XVM volume manager, the TP900 also can function as a RAID Level 1 array.

A single-disk configuration starts around $6,000. A TP900 with eight 73G drives lists at $24,600.
