One clear message heard from small and medium businesses is that their data is as valuable to their organizations as data is to the enterprise customer. In fact, small businesses are experiencing even faster data growth and are discovering that their storage and data protection requirements have more similarities than differences, relative to large enterprises.

Small businesses can take an overburdened internal storage infrastructure to a new level by using the flexible and affordable IBM System Storage™ DS3200 storage system. By moving storage outside the server, small businesses can increase the capacity and reliability of the data solution well beyond the initial storage investment.
Select configurations of the DS3200 are part of the IBM Express Portfolio™, designed and priced to meet the needs of mid-sized businesses. The Express models combine the DS3200 storage system with the IBM SAS HBA Controllers and SAS cables to help you get started with storage quickly.
