“SANcastle is one of the few vendors in the FC/IP market that offer the option of using a single port solution for point to point configurations and a higher port count switched solution,” said Nancy Marrone, senior analyst at The Enterprise Storage Group. “This enables customers to distribute a consistent solution from a single vendor across their enterprise as needs dictate.”

The company expects the GFS-2 to be generally available on next month for $15,000.
