How does it fit into my SAN?










The SANaccelerator fits into SANs just like any other native Fibre storage device. For high throughput or High-Availability environments, multiple 1Gbps or 2Gbps Fibre Channel SAN connectivity is standard. 

For example, assume a SAN with multiple homogeneous or heterogeneous servers networked through meshed fabric switches is attached to several large cached array devices (EMC, HDS, IBM, HP, Sun etc), tape drives, and JBOD (just a bunch of disks). Each server in the SAN may be running applications with performance requirements that periodically change as end-users' demands dictate. The SANaccelerator actively participates in this complex SAN and can be partitioned to serve applications on some or all of the application servers. As performance requirements increase on a server, additional SANaccelerator resources can be brought to bear on to that environment to deliver the required performance acceleration. In summary, the SANaccelerator can be thought of as a consolidated resource or "performance pool" that is shared among all the servers in the SAN. View the Flash presentation for a better visual.
