Inrange Technologies has announced it has developed a scalable, enterprise-class fibre channel switch for storage area networks (SANs). The FC/9000-64 fibre channel switch offers a platform that supports up to 128 fibre channel connections and incorporates such reliability features as redundant internal pathing, control modules, power, fans, and hot-swappable components.
Providing full-duplex, gigabit-per-second bandwidth and support for Class 2 and 3 service levels, the FC/9000-64 is the first in a series of enterprise-class fibre channel switches from Inrange to target the high end of switched storage networking. The switch is expandable in 8-port increments, features Web-browser based control, and supports hard zoning configuration for optimal security and flexibility in organizing ports
