FC SANs to iSCSI SANs

 

Fibre Channel Extension

Businesses have made significant investments in their fibre-channel based storage area networks. The challenge is to leverage the existing FC SAN so that these investments in capital equipment, staff, and infrastructure deliver increasing value to the business. To fully realize these benefits the costs associated with connecting more servers to the FC SAN must be greatly reduced allowing the expansion of FC SANs in a cost effective manner that adds to the overall return on investment while decreasing the total cost of ownership.


iSCSI is the technology that allows IT organizations to accomplish those goals while leveraging existing investments and expertise.

SANRAD iSCSI solutions bridge and provision Fibre Channel storage resources to IP-connected servers replacing the need for additional FC HBAs and FC switches with standard Ethernet components. SANRAD solutions cut the cost of adding new servers by 90% letting you extend existing FC-SANs at a fraction of the cost.



  • Open-iSCSI Fabric - Standardized connectivity across Ethernet environments, linking servers with any storage system for flexible and cost-effective creation of SANs using heterogeneous storage infrastructures including FC, SCSI, iSCSI, SATA and FC fabric.

  • Fault Tolerance - Replication, Snapshots and migration of data across multiple storage systems, prevent data loss and automatically route users to available storage resources. Removable Compact Flash mirrors the configuration database for fast recovery.

  • Storage Security - Access Control Lists, iSCSI login authentication, VPN support and data encryption for access control and remote data security.

Reduces TCO - Cost-effective IP SAN extensions provide significant savings over additional Fibre Channel infrastructure by eliminating host and capacity based licensing, use of existing LAN technology, and simple open scalability.

Increases ROI - Through more efficient storage usage, improved administrative productivity, and reduced network complexity, Fibre Channel Extension achieves a fast return on investment.
