IBM DS Series Overview

The DS Series is a family of SATA direct-attached storage arrays. Disks can be installed in the main chassis and can be expanded by attaching EXP810 or EXP710 disk cabinets. There are a range of models in the DS Series series with options for extra capabilities in terms of number of host connections, host partitions and expansion ports.
