IBM System Storage DS3400 - $150 (Gordonville)

3730 Old Philadelphia Pike

(google map)

condition: good
make / manufacturer: IBM
model name / number: DS3400

For sale is a fully stocked IBM DS3400 with 12 hard drives, dual power supplies, and dual controllers. The drives are all 300 GB 15k drives so 1.2 TB of storage. I am also selling the corresponding fiber switch, an IBM 2005-16B, 16 port fiber switch at 4Gbps. It has 12/16 of the transceivers populated and all were tested and working. Also included is 3 QLogic 4 Gbps Dual Port PCIe Adapters. The one is missing the mounting bracket but the card is still functional and the other 2 have the mouting brackets. I also have 3 fiber cables to connect the transceivers with the switch/SAN.

I no longer have the need for this and want it out of my basement. It is an IBM device but I had set it up with Dell PowerEdge servers. I know this lot of equipment works together since I had it setup in my home lab. Asking $150 for all of it.

Will meet at the Intercourse Community Park; the map marker and address is accurate. If contacting me, please include your phone number in the email and we can communicate via text. I do not list my phone number on the Craigslist post in an effort to reduce spam requests. If your email is only asking if it is available and does not have your number it will be deleted.

If you are interested or have questions, feel free to contact me. Thanks for looking!
