English term or phrase: rather than direct-attached or Fibre Channel arrays
When Jim Tarala oversaw the rebuilding of his firm's network and IT infrastructure last year, he never dreamed he'd throw out his Fibre Channel SAN in favor of IP-based networked storage. The savings, however, were just too large to ignore.
Tarala, CIO and chief technology officer at Schenck Business Solutions, a 500-person accounting firm in Milwaukee, was comfortable with his EMC Clariion storage system, but it was running out of space. Tarala also wanted to eliminate direct-attached storage on his mySQL and Microsoft Exchange Server systems in favor of networked storage. He decided to replace the entire system but initially dismissed the idea of using IP storage-area networks (SAN)—systems that use the iSCSI protocol to allow servers to access stored data over an IP network—rather than direct-attached or Fibre Channel arrays. "I wasn't comfortable with the overall architecture," Tarala says.
Then he discovered that replacing the aging FC700 with a 1.5TB system would cost more than $90,000, while a 2.5TB iSCSI-based PS Series system from EqualLogic Inc. in Nashua, N.H., would cost just $47,000. Schenck gave Fibre Channel the boot. Tarala now has three PS Series systems with more than 7TB of capacity that support 12 servers.
明明前面已经说initially dismissed the idea of using IP storage-area networks (SAN),怎么再来个rather than(而不是)?rather than与哪个部分连用?

Explanation:
不太懂其中的技术相关性,只是从字面上猜测。

公司原来算用IP storage-area networks (SAN) systems 而不是direct-attached or Fibre Channel arrays来更换整个系统,但Tarala最初否决了这个建议,但后来发现前者费用较低,而后者费用太高。

先有人提出一种建议,The idea of using IP storage-area networks (SAN) systems that use the iSCSI protocol to allow servers to access stored data over an IP network—rather than direct-attached or Fibre Channel arrays。他最初采不打算用这个建议。
