FRANKFURT, Germany (SNW Europe) & BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 30 — Spectra Logic today announced the introduction of support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) iSCSI connectivity as an interface option for the Spectra T-Series tape libraries. The 10GbE iSCSI connectivity solution is offered in partnership with Bridgeworks utilizing its EFC102200 10GbE iSCSI to Fibre Channel (FC) Bridge, and allows modern data centers to achieve total flexibility, performance and simple integration of their tape system into 10GbE SANs.
“We’re excited to continue on the path of keeping tape storage systems easy to integrate in the modern data center. By supporting the Bridgeworks solution for 10GbE iSCSI connectivity to our T-series tape libraries, our customers who are designing data center solutions based on 10GbE iSCSI no longer need to maintain a FC SAN just for their tape storage system,” said Molly Rector, executive vice president of product management and worldwide marketing, Spectra Logic.
David Trossell, CEO at Bridgeworks, UK adds, “We’re very pleased to be involved with Spectra Logic. Our two companies have rich history in providing innovative solutions that meet the specific needs of their customers. This is a perfect example of how we can bring our 30 years of experience in connecting storage to provide solutions for a market leader such as Spectra Logic.”
The 10GbE iSCSI to FC bridge is available for purchase through Bridgeworks and offers a tape library connectivity solution that is easy to use and housed in an industry-standard 1U 19-inch rack mount enclosure with the following key features:
“10GbE is becoming increasingly simplistic to use across all data centers – small and large. And, customers around the globe note their growing need for high performance access to storage,” said George Crump, lead analyst, Storage Switzerland. “Spectra continues to make advances in making tape connectivity easy to use no matter what architecture a network infrastructure may be built upon. Once again, Spectra Logic is ahead of the curve by leading with this innovative addition to their tape library line.”
