Emulex Fibre Channel Switches Overview

Embedded Storage Switches

By moving storage architectures from shared to switched, Emulex embedded storage switch products increase the reliability, performance and scalability of storage systems, and reduce costs for both storage providers and end users.

Emulex's award-winning and field-proven InSpeed™ technology is available in SOC (Switch On a Chip), blade and box formats, and is being implemented by the worldıs storage leaders to switch disk drives within storage systems, including HP, the number one vendor of modular disk storage systems and external RAID storage, and Network Appliance, the number one supplier of NAS systems and Fujitsu, one of the top 10 worldwide suppliers of disk storage systems.

Emulex's new FibreSpy™ technology is uniquely flexible by design providing breakthrough solutions for adding switching onto storage system controllers with its FibreSpy SOC 804S SuperScalar Tiered Storage Solution and its FibreSpy SOC 804E Integrated Switch Port Expansion Solution. FibreSpy solutions are available in SOC and blade formats, and are already being implemented by some of the top 10 worldwide suppliers of disk storage systems.

Embedded Storage SOCs

Praised by renowned storage industry experts, analysts and solutions providers, Emulex's award-winning InSpeed technology makes it possible to put the power and flexibility of Fibre Channel switching behind the storage intelligence for the very first time. Both modular storage arrays (RAID, NAS, Tape) and monolithic storage systems can employ InSpeed Embedded Storage SOCs to cost-effectively supercharge back-end performance while scaling and achieve new benchmark levels of system RAS.

  • Field-proven technology ideal for SBOD™ design
  • Increase storage system availability and reliability
    by 20%
  • Lower service costs by 10-15%
  • Increase overall system performance by up to 3x

Designed specifically for storage system OEM's that want to deliver cost effective scalable Fibre Channel connectivity on their storage controllers, FibreSpy technology is the storage industry's first multi-application storage SOC. FibreSpy is the first technology to enable tiered Fibre Channel storage back-ends to intermix high performance 4 Gb/s SBODs, performance optimized 2 Gb/s SBODs, capacity optimized 2 Gb/s SBODs and typical legacy JBODs in the same storage system; and delivers a scaleable front-end interface for integrated SAN switch functions in storage systems and switch server blades.

  • Cost effective scalable Fibre Channel connectivity
  • 4, 2 or 1 Gb/s speed agility
  • Break the FC-AL 126 device barrier to connect 1,000's of disk drives behind storage controllers
  • Increase overall system performance by up to 5x

Embedded Storage Switch Boxes

  • Drop-in solution ideal for root switch designs
  • Increase overall system performance by up to 5x
  • Lower service costs by 10-15%
  • Increase storage system availability and reliability by 20%

Embedded Storage Switch Blades

  • 4 to 20 ports, ideal for back-end switch designs
  • Custom design blades
  • Faster time-to-market
  • Increase system RAS and performance

*Available to OEMs for inclusion in their storage designs.
