IBM upgrades storage products

IBM has upgraded the technology used to connect its high-end "Shark" storage systems to its mainframe servers, the company said Tuesday. The systems can now use IBM's Fibre Channel-based Ficon attachment method, which can transfer data six times faster and support six times the storage capacity of the older Escon attachment technology. In addition, the company announced two faster new models of its Virtual Tape Server product, which lets customers reduce the amount of tape backup cartridges they use.
