Emulex 804S SuperScaled Tiered Storage

SuperScalar-Tiered Storage Solutions

SuperScalar architectures allow storage system vendors the ability to create tiered storage on the back-end of their existing storage arrays for the very first time. Using FibreSpy SOC 804S within a RAID controller allows each port to run at independent Fibre Channel speeds allowing a mix of legacy and next generation storage solutions. The FibreSpy SOC 804S is specifically designed for back-end applications that require more than 126 devices. Using industry standard FC-FLA, FibreSpy SOC 804S supports 24-bit addressing and the ability to scale to thousands of drives. FibreSpy SOC 804S ushers in a paradigm shift for next generation back-end designs. When combined with Emulex's award winning InSpeed or embedded IOC's allows storage system vendors flexibility in advanced architectures.

Benefits to Fibre Channel storage system designs that only Emulex can deliver to back-end architectures include:

  • Speed agile ports allows a tiered storage model by supporting next generation 4Gb/s or FATA devices while interoperating with legacy 2Gb/s and 1Gb/s drive enclosures increasing overall ROI on storage system designs
  • FibreSpy SOC 804S is the first and only solution to create SuperScaled storage back-end infrastructures, connecting thousands of disk drives to storage controllers
  • Speed agile ports allows a tiered storage model by supporting of legacy drive enclosures increasing overall ROI
  • FibreSpy SOC 804S provides cost effective way to increase port count on the back-end instead of adding external root switches
  • FibreSpy SOC 804S is fully compatible with existing Emulex, Agilent, and Qlogic IOC products on the market today.
  • JBOD and SBOD can be intermixed providing fair access to all enclosures within the back-end
  • Compliments existing SBOD designs creating fully switched architectures for maximum storage system performance and RAS
  • 24-bit FC-FLA allows for a seamless drop in without modification to existing storage system designs.
