JMR Electronics Inc. this week announced that it has begun shipping its first 2Gbit/sec Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop disk array enclosures.

The new products fully support the 2Gb/s bus and are backwards compatible with 1Gb/s host adapters and disk drives as well. The 2Gb/s FORTRA(TM) products are differentiated from earlier 1Gb/s versions by the addition of a "G" and a "2" in the part number, denoting "GBIC" and "2Gb/s" compatibility.

JMR said its first fully compatible 2Gb/s enclosures are the result of six months of research, development and compatibility testing. The products support the 2Gb/s FC-AL bus from hosts, through the disk drives, and back out to the loop expansion ports. JMR has completed all compatibility testing using Emulex's Lightpulse LP9002L 2Gb/s host bus adapters and Seagate ST318451FC 2Gb/s FC disk drives to build the arrays.

According to the company, further compatibility testing is in process, and a compatibility list will be published and updated regularly.
