Fujitsu Announces Networked Storage Virtualization Solution Based on Brocade Intelligent Switch Platform
Fujitsu Computer Systems and Brocade Communications Systems announced that Fujitsu Computer Systems will begin shipping the ETERNUS VS900 storage virtualization solution running on the Brocade SilkWorm Fabric Application Platform, an intelligent Storage Area Network switch designed to support SAN-based applications for storage environment management and administration.
The Brocade intelligent switch provides an out-of-band architecture that enables the ETERNUS VS900 solution to achieve scalability for constantly changing IT environments. The ETERNUS VS900 solution is also designed to streamline resource provisioning and simplify the management of enterprise data through a transparent, heterogeneous pool of data that is managed from a single, user-friendly platform.
The Brocade SilkWorm Fabric AP is an open, intelligent switching platform for hosting fabric applications. It is designed to centralize data management, movement and administration while simplifying the administration of storage environments through consolidation. The platform enables a wide range of fabric-based storage applications—such as volume management, data migration, virtualization and data replication—to be deployed on a scalable and intelligent hardware platform.
The new virtualization solution was designed to be used in conjunction with the ETERNUS3000 midrange storage solution and the ETERNUS6000 enterprise-class storage solutions.
The ETERNUS VS900 network storage virtualization solution is available in the United States beginning December 1, 2005.
