Fibre Channel RAIDs and arrays for Fibre Channel SAN

Fibre Channel hardware, including fibre disk and fibre switches, remains the technology of choice for high performance, low-latency storage. The protocols can exceed 4Gbps. Some of the featured fibre disk products we offer are from:

Fibre channel technology offers point-to-point, shared or arbitrated loop (FC-AL), switched, and fabric topologies. Fibre channel hardware can be mapped over SCSI (FCP), or ESCON (FICON) protocols, and can also be “tunneled” over TCP/IP networks (FCIP). Internet Fibre Channel Protocol (iFCP) can support Fibre Channel Layer 4 FCP over TCP/IP now too, so you can utilize Fibre channel storage devices while utilizing your existing IP network.
