IP Connectivity in a Box

The SL1000 from SAN Valley Systems provides a complete Fiber Channel-to-IP connectivity solution by tunneling Fiber Channel data across a Gigabit Ethernet network. The hardware-based encapsulation methodology enables cost-effective wire speed performance without creating the kinds of bottlenecks caused by similar software-based architectures. Its innovative flow control methodology minimizes jitter and latency for maximum data throughput. It also provides traffic congestion management capabilities by utilizing standards-based Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms over IP networks to provide cost-effective delivery and reliability for storage traffic.

The system's technology supports high-bandwidth storage applications and allows for interoperability with existing GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexing) and FC (Fiber Channel) products. In addition, the SL1000's high availability platform provides redundant power and cooling for increased product reliability and longevity. It comes equipped with extensive network statistics for measuring performance, monitoring channel integrity and monitoring service level agreements. The system also includes SAN Patrol, SAN Valley's comprehensive network management application that collects and displays performance data for network administrators.
