Channel storage resources to IP-connected servers, helping to maximize the value of existing SAN and storage device investments. Brocade iSCSI GATEWAY Highlights • Provides a cost-effective iSCSI gateway that combines two Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 2 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel ports in a single device • Standardizes connectivity across Ethernet environments, linking servers with a wider range of storage systems • Improves data availability with dual gateway, active/active clustered failover, failback, and multipathing capabilities • Provides high performance with 135 MB/sec of throughput, 9500 IOPS, and up to 100 simultaneous iSCSI connections • Increases application deployment flexibility with compatibility for Windows, AIX, HP-UX, Linux, NetWare, and Solaris iSCSI initiators •Enables Web-based management for rapid deployment and simplified management • Provides traffic statistics on each storage and network interface to help identify bandwidth usage by host and target pairs Significantly Higher SAN Efficiency The Brocade® iSCSI Gateway enables cost-effective, easy-to-manage server connectivity to Fibre Channel storage devices—enabling remote user and interdepartmental access to these valuable resources. As a result, even the lowest-cost servers can connect to existing Storage Area Networks (SANs) and take advantage of high-performance, reliable Fibre Channel storage devices. REDUCED OPERATIONAL COSTS By extending the benefits of networked storage to IP-connected servers, the Brocade iSCSI Gateway helps organizations grow and consolidate their current Fibre Channel SAN infrastructures in a simple and cost-effective manner, thereby reducing operational costs. For instance, attaching IP-connected servers to new or existing Fibre Channel SANs can significantly improve resource utilization for strategic SAN solutions such as backup, data replication, storage allocation, provisioning, and disaster recovery. In turn, storage consolidation and centralized management enable organizations to manage more storage and applications with fewer administrative resources. The Brocade iSCSI Gateway also enables rapid deployment with minimal configuration, supporting easier growth and integration into existing Fibre Channel SAN environments. It supports a wide range of native iSCSI initiators for Windows, AIX, HP-UX, Linux, NetWare, and Solaris. The Brocade iSCSI Gateway features a compact 1U half-rack-width design (full-rack-width design for clustered configurations). Each device provides two iSCSI ports for connecting to IP networks supporting iSCSI servers, and two 2 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel ports for connecting to Fibre Channel SANs or storage. By enabling blockbased access to business-critical information, the Brocade iSCSI Gateway helps organizations rapidly add new servers and clients to their existing Fibre Channel SANs as business needs dictate. INTELLIGENT MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING Organizations can easily manage one or more Brocade iSCSI Gateways through a browser-based GUI that can also monitor traffic statistics on each storage and network interface BROCADE PRODUCTS The Brocade iSCSI Gateway extends Fibre Brocade iSCSI GATEWAY to help ensure high performance. A secure command line interface is available with Secure Shell (SSH) for customizing or automating operations to synchronize with server applications. In addition, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support is available for configuration and health monitoring. HIGH AVAILABILITY MAXIMIZING SAN INVESTMENTS The Brocade iSCSI Gateway provides two-way active/active clustering with failover and failback capabilities for business-critical environments. In addition, multiple iSCSI connections provide multipathing support from a single gateway to as many as 100 servers. Brocade and its partners offer complete SAN solutions to meet a wide range of technology and business requirements. These solutions include education and training, support, service, and professional services to help optimize SAN investments.
