IBM offers IP-based storage

IBM has begun selling high-end storage systems using a new technology. More traditional high-end storage networks use special-purpose Fibre Channel networks, but newer technology has begun moving to the communication standard that underlies the Internet. IBM's Global Services group has begun selling Nishan Systems' storage networking equipment based on the Internet Protocol (IP). Meanwhile, IBM's Tivoli group has begun modifying its management software to accommodate IP, in particular the arrival of Ethernet networks that can transfer data at the rate of 1 gigabit per second.
