Fibre Channel SAN Expansion
Extend your FC SAN

SANRAD solutions bridge and provision Fibre Channel storage resources to all IP-connected servers. Replacing FC HBAs and FC switches with standard Ethernet components, SANRAD greatly reduces the cost of adding servers to the SAN, consolidates networked storage and maximizes SAN ROI.
FC-SAN Expansion

The high cost of sharing storage over FC networks, extends the advantages of networked storage to only a subset of select applications. The inherent nature of the FC protocol limits remote users and interdepartmental access to central FC-SAN resources.

SANRAD IP-SANs combine standard iSCSI-based IP connectivity with network-based volume management, to extend your FC-SAN by economically adding servers and enabling remote access to central SANs:

  • SANRAD cuts the cost of adding new servers by 90% letting you extend existing FC-SANs at a fraction of the cost.
  • SANRAD enables cost-effective and scaleable connection of servers to FC storage, affording remote user and interdepartmental access to FC-SAN resources, without requiring FC tunneling.
  • SANRAD‘s network-based storage management services enable simple volume creation across extended FC-SANs. By provisioning large LUNs from the existing FC-SAN and creating smaller volumes for departmental storage, SANRAD greatly reduces IT overhead.
  • SANRAD IP-SANs are completely interoperable with leading networked storage systems allowing you to reuse your existing IT infrastructure for full investment protection.

Competitive Advantages   Affordable Start Up Costs:

Economical IP connectivity: 70% lower than FC alternatives.

Storage reuse & vendor freedom.

SCSI or FC storage interoperability.

   Low Operational Costs:

Full storage availability: Eliminate costly effects of storage failure and downtime.

Use of existing IP management knowledge.

Network-based volume management: Cross enclosure, agent-free, single point of management.

End-to-end storage control.
