IBM envisions Clustered Modular Storage

IBM‘s next-generation storage architecture will be based on clusters of inexpensive servers and storage devices that are software managed and offer an alternative to tiers of increasingly expensive devices, the head of the company’s storage unit said Thursday.

In an interview with InformationWeek, Andrew Monshaw, general manager of system storage for IBM, said the foundation of IBM’s future approach will be the technology acquired last month in the purchase of XIV Ltd., a Tel Aviv-based maker of high-performance digital storage systems. The startup provides the tools IBM needs to deliver what Monshaw called “clustered modular storage.”

Also, in meeting customers’ needs for faster storage devices, IBM plans to introduce in the next couple of quarters solid-state drives that will work alongside hard-disk drives, Monshaw said.
