JMR Electronics today introduced the FORTRA Desktop 6-Bay, a powerful, compact Fibre Channel storage solution designed to bring departmental-level storage features to smaller, cost-conscious organizations.
Measuring just 11 inches by 7 inches by 12 inches, the Desktop 6-Bay is, according to JMR, the smallest form factor large capacity, high-performance 2GB Fibre Channel solution on the market. The 6-drive, 2GB Fibre Channel device offers an easy, cost-effective way to increase storage capacity and deliver an enterprise-strength storage solution to the desktop, a workgroup or department. With its small footprint, the 6-bay tower can provide up to 876GB of Fibre Channel storage in environments where space is at a premium.

JMR says that the device is also an attractive solution for small or home offices with massive photo, music or video files.
