Enterprise Storage OS for High Availability 

Storage Centralization with Fibre Channel Storage 

Fibre Channel (FC) Storage uses a high-speed network technology for data storage that has become a common connection type for SAN enterprise storage. It is especially suited for creating SAN topologies for virtualization, data center or other demanding platforms. The technology offers point-to-point, switched, and loop interfaces, and is designed to interoperate with SCSI.

Key uses for Fibre Channel Storage:

  • High performance SAN (Storage Area Network) storage systems
  • Data centralization
  • Simplified storage management
  • Reduction of downtime and easy maintenance

Benefits of Fibre Channel Storage in Open-E software

High performance

The Fibre Channel protocol was designed to be used in SANs right from the beginning. It can run at 8 or 16 gigabit per second rates and avoids congestion. The dedicated bandwidth avoids collisions and allows a bigger saturation of your available network performance. It is the traditional choice for SANs, but receives more competition by iSCSI.

Hardware independence

With Open-E software you are able to choose storage components according to your requirements without being forced to use hardware from a certain vendor. With unlimited storage capacity you can easily expand your storage space as your data grows. Adapt the system for high performance or low cost and control your total cost of ownership.
