The Crossroads® ServerAttach™ SA40 has completed testing under the IBM TotalStorage™ Proven Program and earned IBM TotalStorage™ Proven status. This program provides Crossroads customers with pre-tested solutions and configurations to simplify the adoption of storage networking technology.


ServerAttach Provides FC Connectivity
The Crossroads® ServerAttach™ SA40 quickly enables your mid-range SCSI servers to access Fibre Channel (FC) storage. Many SCSI servers either have no FC option available or, if they do, they require costly upgrades to the operating system (OS) and applications. With the SA40, there is no need to upgrade servers, thus minimizing server downtime for installation. No HBA hardware, driver software, or kernel modifications are required for most installs. A simple user interface even shortens the installation process into several easy steps. With the SA40 you can now connect up to four, or as many as eight **, SCSI servers at once to your FC tape and disk subsystems without making changes to servers. The SA40 also provides enterprise-class functionality with redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fans, as well as field upgradeable and replaceable I/O modules for easy maintenance and system port expandability.

Patented “Access Controls” software embedded on the SA40 further improves access to storage resources by providing essential security and host access into SAN environments. Because today’s policy-based data management strategies require reliable business-critical data protection solutions, the SA40 delivers robust shared data access when you need it at an amazing 300 MB/s maximum sustained performance.

** Requires purchase/installation of second SCSI module for additional four SCSI ports.

Key Benefits of ServerAttach
Consolidation of Storage Investments
Whether you already have a Storage Area Network (SAN) or you are considering implementation of a SAN, your business critical applications and servers need access to the centralized external storage resources on the SAN. The SA40 enables the centralization of your storage resources by allowing these resource investments to be diversified across multiple servers. To enhance the Return On Investment (ROI) for your new and existing SCSI-based servers, the SA40 provides valuable connectivity to Fibre Channel resources.

SCSI to Fibre Channel Connectivity
A growing diversity of storage protocols lack support in many operating systems or business applications. The SA40 delivers a robust solution by providing protocol conversion between SCSI-based servers and the Fibre Channel architectures that are used in the majority of installed SANs. By leveraging Fibre Channel, the SA40 removes the distance limitations associated with SCSI, and allows access of FC resources over extended distances. With this level of enhanced connectivity, the SA40 stands as the best solution to protect your investments in SCSI servers and their hosted business applications.

Business Continuity
The SA40 also fosters enhanced security by allowing direct control over each host’s specific access to storage resources, down to the Logical Unit (LUN) level. As a result, entire tape libraries or even specific tape drives can be hidden from selected hosts while remaining visible to others. Access to your SAN resources can be shared, allowing multiple hosts to avoid conflicts with each other while utilizing the same storage devices.
