Infortrend Taps Emulex SOC

Arthur Cole

A quick note for Infortrend users: The company has selected the Emulex InSpeed SOC 422 embedded storage switch for the EonStor 4 Gbps RAID and SBOD controllers.

 

The combination provides Infortrend with a high-performance back-end capable of extending the EonStor system to hundreds of disks, giving enterprises the ability to scale up to hundreds of disks on one controller.

 

As a 4 Gbps FC switch, the Emulex device provides backward compatibility with existing 1 and 2 Gbps architectures, and provides an upgrade path for upcoming 8 Gbps systems in the works. The company has also devised a unique point-to-point switching capability that increases speed across the back end for high-transfer environments like database management and Web services.
