Storage Area Networking

Scalable storage networking infrastructure built to meet today’s demands while accommodating future innovation

As the amount of data and storage required continues to increase, Data Center managers are looking to implement faster backup and retrieval speeds, better scalability to add more storage, and overall better flexibility and manageability. One solution to tackle the management of this data growth is the implementation of a Storage Area Network (SAN). The SAN is strictly dedicated to transmitting large amounts of data between servers and storage devices with the help of Fibre Channel.

At the same time, due to the nature of Fibre 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. Since Fibre 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.

Designed to meet relentless growth and mission-critical application demands, so-called Directors are the right platform for large enterprise environments that require increased capacity, greater throughput, and higher levels of resiliency. Secure, high density, and proven data center technology, combines scalability and availability with long-lasting investment protection.

As the number of devices connected to Fibre Channel fabrics increases, the demand for options to simplify connectivity grows as well. MPO connections with QSFP optics are increasingly being deployed to enable consolidation of optics and cabling as well as future support for high-speed 128-Gbps parallel Fibre Channel connections. R&M supports the use of QSFP optics on its Netscale platforms, including the Netscale Blade-Cabling Manager for modular switches such as Directors. The MPO form factor has been widely deployed across the networking industry for Ethernet (40-Gbps and 100-Gbps speeds) and Fibre Channel connectivity.
