Monolithic vs. midrange

Randy Kerns
With midrange arrays rapidly closing the gaps that exist between them and monolithic arrays, certain key differences remain:

  • Mainframe support. Midrange arrays usually don't support either mainframe ESCON or FICON connectivity, but this is changing because EMC and IBM offer FICON connectivity on their upper-end midrange arrays.

  • Skill sets. Administrators generally need to be more technically proficient to manage a monolithic array.
