Centralised and Shared Server-Storage Consolidation
SANs are centrally managed, shared storage networks enabled by the Fibre Channel storage interface. Fibre Channel offers multiple-server to multiple-storage device connectivity, and features a “pay as you grow” scalability to add more storage or servers to the SAN, increasing capacity and performance as needed. Storage I/O is communicated between servers, RAID arrays and tape libraries over their own network of HBAs, switches, hubs and routers separate from the LAN.
Avante Digital SAN solutions are engineered to overcome the limits of traditional LAN based SCSI-attached client/server storage to meet the rapidly increasing storage needs of today's IT departments and the demands of the 24x7 business world.
“Best of Breed” Product Offering
At the foundation of these dynamic storage solutions is Avante Digital's Fibre Channel RAID solutions, which are integrated with the "best of breed" products from the leading SAN hardware and software manufacturers in the industry.
We also offer automated tape library products from Overland Storage, Fibre Channel switches, hubs, routers and HBAs from Q-Logic and Chaparral Networks.
In addition, Avante Digital bundles intelligent software products to this hardware infrastructure from our industry partners VERITAS, Legato, Bakbone, Tivoli and Software Generation.
This powerful combination of hardware and software products allows Avante Digital to implement innovative computing application solutions such as LAN-free back-up, server-less back-up, clustering and replication, storage pooling, storage management, Fabric/FC-AL management and storage/file sharing
