At a glance

The used IBM N6240 Storage N Array are
designed to provide:

  • High data availability and system-level redundancy
  • Support of concurrent block I/O and file serving over Ethernet and Fibre Channel
    (FC) SAN infrastructures
  • High throughput and fast response times
  • Support of enterprise customers requiring Network Attached Storage (NAS), with
    FC, or Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) connectivity
  • Attachment of FC, SAS, and SATA disk expansion units

The IBM System Storage N series is designed to interoperate with products capable
of data transmission in the industry-standard iSCSI, CIFS, FCP, Fibre Channel over
Ethernet (FCoE), and NFS protocols. Supported systems include the IBM System
p®, IBM System i® (NFS only), IBM System x®, and IBM System z® (NFS only)
servers. The used IBM N6210 systems consist of the Model C10, Model C20, and associated
software. The used IBM N6240 systems consist of the Model C21, Model E11, Model E21, and
associated software.

All five models can be configured, via optional features, to be either storage
controllers or gateways. Dual-node configurations include Clustered Failover (CFO)
support (via required feature), designed to provide failover and failback function,
helping improve overall availability.

All five must be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack. None of the five include
storage in the base chassis.
