IBM Cuts Storwize Array Disk And SSD Prices
November 4, 2013 Timothy Prickett Morgan
The new Storwize V5000 arrays were just announced, as we reported elsewhere in this issue of The Four Hundred, and IBM is already tweaking the prices on disk and flash drives for the machines. IBM has also cut prices on disks and SSDs for its V7000 arrays and for SSDs used in the SAN Volume Controller and the Flex System V7000 array.
The price cuts were revealed in announcement letter 313-103. As usual, I have plowed through the IBM Sales Manual to figure out what features are affected by the price changes:
IBM did not cut prices on all of the disks and SSDs used in these machines, just the units above. The price changes went into effect on October 22.
