Storage traffic is shooting up due to the proliferation of networked storage. Storage Area Networks (SANs) are growing larger and become aver denser. At the same time, due to the nature of Fiber Channel, SANs require a much more sophisticated fiber optic solution than Ethernet networks. Thus, they must provide the performance and flexibility to manage the technical demands for years to come.
R&M can Support you During the Planning Phase
Since Fiber Channel sets even higher demands to the physical network and is less forgiving than Ethernet, Infrastructure Managers from all over the world trust their SAN to R&M.
R&M Data Center Solutions Provide for:
- Optimal optical raceway and cable management designs — cabinets with integrated vertical and horizontal cable management provide enhanced handling and more space for airflow; raceway design services already envision future moves, adds and changes.
- Bandwidth-explosion-ready High-Performance Network Connectivity (HPNC) – best of breed OM4 optical fiber, Cat. 6A twisted-pair and SFP+ direct attach technology meet the bandwidth requirements of upcoming Ethernet and Fiber Channel applications.
- Automated infrastructure management that provides total visibility of the physical network – with R&MinteliPhy network managers can manage their physical infrastructure intelligently and fully automatic. With this revolutionary RFID-based system, data centers immediately improve capacity utilization, profitability, and availability.
