Crossroads SCSI to Fibre Channel, Crossroads 10000 SCSI to FC Storage Router


Crossroads® 10000™ Storage Router
The Crossroads® 10000™ is a modular storage router that performs all the key protocol and management functions between storage devices and the network. Utilizing Crossroads patented ‘Access Controls’ technology, the 10000 enables sharing of both SCSI and FC storage devices among multiple hosts on the Fibre Channel storage network. The 10000 is designed to maximize port density, increase performance, and deliver high availability and manageability beyond today’s available routers. The Crossroads Visual Manager™ (CVM™) delivers best-in-class manageability for SCSI and FC storage devices.

Dynamic LUN Mapping and LUN Masking to the device level
Server-free backup/restore
Key Benefits
Ease of Use to Reduce Storage Network Management Costs and Complexity
The best out-of-box user experience in the storage router industry: The Crossroads 10000 storage router is significantly easier to install than other routers due to the save-and-forward configuration feature and CVM. CVM enables service professionals and end users to simply “point and click” on a graphical representation of the router for configuration. Crossroads’ leading interoperability ensures that the 10000 works well with other SAN components.

Easiest storage routers to manage: The Crossroads 10000 enables individual storage devices to be managed as an integrated system rather than as a collection of stand-alone devices. The 10000 includes Crossroads Visual Manager™, a powerful software management tool for storage networks that defines how SAN devices share resources. Only Crossroads offers the ability to manage storage routers and access tape device information from any computer with a web browser. The 10000 also includes an embedded web server so that CVM runs as a web application. The CVM is a graphical user interface unique to Crossroads routers. Other routers require a software agent to be loaded onto the computers used to manage the router, adding complexity to installation and reducing access to storage router and tape library information.

Continuous Availability to Eliminate Downtime
Error Recovery: The 10000 storage router is designed to avoid downtime. The 10000 equips any tape library with proactive error recovery and health check tools to ensure data integrity and reliable backup. This level of intelligent management increases the uptime of tape libraries.

Design for Serviceability: Multiple storage network ports provide redundant network connections, ensuring continuous host access. Dual power supplies and fans ensure router uptime in case of a component failure, providing continuous access to storage devices. Crossroads unique modular design, new field replaceable, hot swappable power supplies and fans eliminate downtime to replace components.

Lower Solution Cost
Reduced installation and management costs: The Crossroads 10000 storage router is significantly easier to install and manage than other routers. Simplified installation reduces management costs and staffing requirements.

Investment Protection: Because the 10000 uses field-replaceable I/O modules, as well as FC ports that support 1 or 2 Gigabit speeds, your investment is protected with flexible connectivity and scalability.

Fewer routers required: With up to 4 modules per router and up to 4 SCSI buses or 2 FC ports per module, fewer routers are required to connect to the same number of storage devices. Installing fewer storage routers reduces the cost per port, and increases the space available for other devices.

High Performance for Faster Backups
Faster backups: The Crossroads 10000 can back up data significantly faster than any other storage router. The 10000 offers the best performance in the industry with throughput of 300 MB/s, 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel ports and Ultra160 SCSI (160 MB/s) buses. This increased performance enables the 10000 to backup and restore existing data in significantly less time, or in increasingly larger data sets within the customers’ current backup window.

LAN-free and Server-free Backup/Restore: LAN-free backup/restore moves the bulk of data backup and recovery traffic from the LAN and into the storage network. Server-free backup is a new technology wherein the application server offloads the work of moving blocks of data to a specialized “data-mover” device (e.g. Crossroads 10000 storage router) located on a storage network. The application instructs the data-mover about what to do, using the new SCSI “Third-Party Copy” or “Extended Copy” command, and then the data-mover does the bulk of the work. CPU cycle use and I/O on the server are drastically reduced.
