SAN | For your high-performance applications, you need to maximize data utilization, optimize storage performance and availability, and eliminate duplicate data. With SAN solution, you can maintain high performance and availability while also achieving greater storage efficiency.
In addition, our SAN solution supports operating systems for non-disruptive operations, proven efficiency, and seamless scalability. These benefits persist even with server virtualization, greater capacity, and faster provisioning that put heavy demands on storage systems. The SAN solution is recommended for high performance, high productivity and heavy demands.
iSCSI | iSCSI, which stands for Internet Small Computer System Interface, works on top of the Transport Control Protocol (TCP) and allows the SCSI command to be sent end-to-end over local-area networks (LANs), wide-area networks (WANs) or the Internet. iSCSI works by transporting block-level data between an iSCSI initiator on a server and an iSCSI target on a storage device. The iSCSI protocol encapsulates SCSI commands and assembles the data in packets for the TCP/IP layer. Because it uses standard Ethernet, iSCSI does not require expensive and sometimes complex switches and cards that are needed to run Fiber Channel (FC) networks. That makes it cheaper to adopt and easier to manage. Regarding Data Transmission, iSCSI is the most popular approach to storage data transmission over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.
FCoE | FCoE, also known as Fiber Channel over Ethernet is combining the Fibre Channel protocol and an enhanced Ethernet physical transport in order to expand options for SAN connectivity and networking. At Pi Systems, we offer data storage systems with FCoE support. Ethernet storage simplifies data management and reduces TCO. FCoE storage systems let you migrate to a unified Ethernet infrastructure over time, while preserving your storage investments. We deliver qualified FCoE solutions with leading infrastructure and networking partners to help accelerate your data infrastructure deployments.
