This is a technical overview of IBM System Storage N series solutions, including N series unified architecture, flexible operating system, data availability, protection, and archiving solutions, as well as data manageability, security, and other solutions. IBM N series solutions are easy to manage, quick to deploy, offering increased availability with fewer IT resources. N series solutions dramatically lower lifetime Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Where other solutions try to manage complexity, N series solutions simply eliminate it. N series offers a Unified Storage Architecture. The term "Unified" refers to a family of storage systems that simultaneously supports Storage Area Network (SAN), Network Attached Storage (NAS), and iSCSI (internet SCSI) across many operating environments (including VMware, Microsoft Windows and UNIX to name a few).
