The Only Provider of End-to-End SAN Infrastructure.


A unified network platform for server connectivity, switched fabrics, network services and storage services. Avoid complex and costly integration projects and single-point Management. Higher performance, pervasive interoperability and simpler installation and management. Accelerates key storage application operations (including mirroring, snapshot, and virtualization for LSI StoreAge SVM) directly within hardware.

Solutions to the following issues:

  • Uses Split-path (also known as SPAID) processing that separates the data path from control path processing, which results in superior application performance
  • Combines VMware server virtualisation with storage virtualisation maximising the benefits of virtualisation
  • The industry’s first 4Gb stackable switch with 99.999% availability
  • Qlogic HBA’s complete product offering for both PCI-X 2.0 & PCI Express 4Gb HBAs

Key Benefits:

  • Increases SAN performance for mission critical applications
  • Simple SAN management and cost effective
  • The most complete SAN solution from HBA to the Core

SANbox 9000 Series Switches – Designed to the Core™ for Open Systems

Finally, there’s a new class of core switch that represents a sane alternative to quarter million dollar Director switches. The SANbox9000 series is Designed to the Core™ for cost sensitive, business-critical, open system environments that require an ultra-high density, blazing performance, 99.999% availability, intelligent switch platform for their data center core. SANbox 9000 series represents a number of industry firsts: a stackable chassis module for simple, cost-effective scalability, a 4U chassis module for smaller footprint, the simplicity and economies of Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) and a comprehensive set of Director-class software management tools included as standard. Best of all, pricing starts at under $100K.

The highly scalable SANbox 9000 is a stackable chassis switch with a dedicated 800Gb/s HyperStack™ connection between as many as two chassis modules. The high port count SANbox 9000 supports up to 256 ports in a dual chassis configuration. The intelligent SANbox 9000 offers in one chassis module: 8 slots for any mix of 4Gb or 10Gb Fibre Channel I/O Blades, with an 8GB FC I/O blade coming in mid-CY2008. For high availability, the SANbox 9000 features redundant, hot-swap I/O, CPU, Power Supply and Fan blades. And for comprehensive fabric management, the SANbox 9000 includes a powerful and easy-to-use suite of software tools for setting-up, monitoring, tuning, troubleshooting and servicing an unlimited number of large fabrics.
