Crossroads SCSI to Fibre Channel, Crossroads 6000 SCSI to FC Storage Router

Crossroads® 6000™ Storage Router
Crossroads believes that delivering quality means consistently meeting and exceeding customer expectations. Crossroads has been developing, testing, installing, and supporting storage routers for over seven years. No other storage router company can match the quality and experience of the Crossroads team.

Crossroads® 6000™ Datasheet - PDF (712 KB)

The Crossroads 6000 Storage Router is designed to connect SCSI devices into a Fibre Channel (FC) fabric or loop. The Crossroads 6000 is neatly packaged in a 1U form factor with one 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel port and two HVD or LVD/SE SCSI buses.

External throughput is up to 160 MB/s for LVD connections. The Fibre Channel port can be set for 1 or 2 Gb/s speeds and can connect in arbitrated loop (including point to point configurations) or switched fabric topologies. SCSI buses are HVD or LVD/SE, with automatic negotiation for Fast, Narrow, Wide, and up to Ultra160 SCSI.

One 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC) port
Two HVD or LVD/SE SCSI Buses
Manageability: Crossroads Visual Manager™ software, Command-Line interface, FTP utility, FA MIB 2.2 support, Interoperability with other SAN Management Applications
LAN-free and Server-free backup enabled
1U form factor
Integrate legacy SCSI tape libraries into FC storage networks
Dynamic LUN mapping for device level configuration
LUN masking for storage network security at the device level
Key Benefits
Low cost 2 Gb/s connectivity for mid-range tape libraries
Investment Protection: With one 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel port and maximum throughput of 160 MB/second, the 6000 integrates SCSI tape libraries into high-performance Fibre Channel storage networks. With a simple two SCSI bus and one FC port design, the 6000 is the cost-effective choice for storage routing.

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 6000 storage router is significantly easier to install than other routers. Crossroads’ patented technology ensures accurate device mapping and security, and Crossroads’ leading interoperability ensures the 6000 works well with other SAN components.

Easiest storage routers to manage: The Crossroads 6000 storage router is significantly easier to manage than other routers. With Crossroads Visual Manager™ (CVM™), service professionals and end users simply “point and click” in the graphical user interface (GUI) for access to current status information and management settings. An embedded web server on the 6000 allows CVM to run as a web application from any computer with a web browser, providing a powerful software management tool to define how devices share resources on the storage network. Individual storage devices can be managed as an integrated system rather than as a collection of stand-alone devices.

High Performance for Faster Backups
Faster backups:The Crossroads 6000 offers the industry’s best value proposition in a 2 Gb/s storage router designed for entry-level, workgroup, and departmental SANs. Customers benefit from LAN-free backup and restore, which moves the bulk of data backup and recovery traffic from the LAN and into the storage network. Removing the LAN bottleneck ensures that SCSI devices can operate at full speed. Using the Crossroads 6000, existing data can be backed up or restored in less time, or in increasingly larger data sets within the customers’ current backup window.

Server-free Backup/Restore: Server-free backup offloads the work of moving blocks of data from the application server to a specialized “data-mover” device (e.g. Crossroads 6000 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.

SCSI Cable Specifications
The Crossroads 6000 uses LVD rated SCSI cables, which offer the best low-noise transmission of data. Recommended cables are 2.0 meters in length, have a VHDCI 68pin .8mm D-shell/P-type to Standard 68pin SCSI D-shell connector for the router, and are rated at 24 Ohm impedance.

The Storage Router
The Crossroads 6000 is an affordable solution that incorporates 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel connectivity with value-added benefits, such as server-free backup, for entry to mid-range tape libraries. Contact Crossroads today to learn how you can put the Crossroads 6000 to work in your SAN.

Crossroads Visual Manager™ (CVM™)
CVM is a new graphical user interface for Crossroads storage routers. Configuring and managing Crossroads routers has never been easier with the CVM. Service professionals and end users configure the router by “pointing and clicking” on a graphical representation of the router.

The CVM runs as a web application, and the storage router acts as a web server. The CVM can be accessed from any computer with a web browser (as long as this computer has security access privileges to access the router). This is a unique and differentiating feature of Crossroads routers. Other routers require a software agent to be loaded onto the computers that will be used to manage the router.

Crossroads Visual Manager™ provides an easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring and managing the Crossroads 6000 storage router. CVM™ offers click-thru capability on a visual representation of the router, allowing users simple access to information and configuration settings.
