EMC Adds New Director and Switch to Connectrix Family
EMC Corporation today announced an expansion of its EMC Connectrix family of enterprise-class directors, switches and management tools. The new Connectrix ED-48000B Fibre Channel enterprise director and the ports-on-demand scalability of the Connectrix DS-220B Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN) switch, based on Brocade technology, are available today.
According to the company, the Connectrix ED-48000B director provides key capabilities that meet a full spectrum of mission-critical requirements for enterprise SAN environments. And the Connectrix DS-220B switch provides an affordable, scalable single-switch solution for new small SANs or existing SANs being upgraded with newer technology.
Based on the Brocade SilkWorm 48000 director, the Connectrix ED-48000B scales non-disruptively from 32-256 concurrently active 4 Gbit/sec full-duplex ports in a single domain. It offers enterprise resource planning (ERP) and data warehousing. The Connectrix ED-48000B director integrates with heterogeneous environments and supports multiple operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, HP-UX and AIX.
The 4 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel Connectrix DS-220B switch is based on the Brocade SilkWorm 200E technology and can be used as a primary SAN switch as well as an edge switch in departments and branch offices. It consists of 8-16 ports on demand – for pay-as-you-grow scalability – and features the EZSwitchSetup wizard for enhanced manageability.
