It's been less than two months since we last blogged about the increase in iSCSI options for SMBs, from the likes of IBM, HP and Dell.
Now there is yet another entrant, this time one aimed at the low end of the SMB market or, as the Channel Register puts it, the "S" side of the SMB segment.
NetApp is adding the S300, a no-frills iSCSI storage array, to its StoreVault line, the Channel Register reports. The S300's price tag starts at $3,000 with one terabyte of storage.
Its storage capacity is four terabytes, vs. the six-terabyte capacity of its closest cousin, the S500. Unlike the S500, the S300 also has no Fibre Channel option. It is capable of running VMware, though it is not yet certified to do so; NetApp expects that to happen in the next few months.
The product is most appropriate for sites with five to 15 servers in a Windows environment, including remote offices of large companies, according to the Channel Register.
