Benefits and Methods of SAN Extension Using QLogic Switches and Routers

Realize the benefits of storage area networks (SANs) by using public or private networks. The benefits of SANs include centralized data management, back up, and restoration of data, as well as remote archiving for disaster recovery and business continuity. Host bus adapters (HBAs), switches, and multiprotocol routers are the keys to the fibre channel network—and the high-quality of select remote sites.

Reinventing Data Masking: Secure Data Across Application Landscapes: On Premise, Offsite and in the Cloud

Be it personal customer details or confidential internal analytic information, ensuring the protection of your organization’s sensitive data inside and outside of production environments is crucial. Multiple copies of data and constant transmission of sensitive information stream back and forth across your organization. As information shifts between software development, testing, analysis, and reporting departments, a large "surface area of risk" is created. This area of risk increases even more... Read More

Stackable Switches: A Better Way to Scale SAN Infrastructure

Fibre channel storage area networks (SANs) used to be implemented in only high-end enterprise class data centers, but this is no longer the case. SANs have become more affordable and can be widely implemented without sacrificing performance. When you need to expand your frame-based computer network, consider stackable switches as a cost-effective solution for the infrastructure of a fibre channel SAN. Read More

SmartWrite-Accelerating SAN-over-WAN Performance

The limited distance capabilities of storage area networks (SANs) make it difficult for IT managers to share, protect, and move data over areas greater than ten kilometers. Using routers and switches that link SANs over Internet protocol wide area networks (IP WANs) is one way to approach this difficulty. Go the distance with your SAN—learn what it takes to build and implement SAN-over-WAN solutions. Read More
