Vixel Tests Successfully

Vixel Corp., a provider of storage area networking (SAN) solutions, announced today that IBM has verified the compatibility of the Vixel 9100 2Gb/s Fibre Channel Switch for use with IBM’s latest 2Gb/s subsystem enclosures. IBM has successfully completed compatibility testing between the Vixel 9100 and its ProFibre Storage Array DF4000R and DF4000J enclosures.

“This illustrates Vixel’s commitment to providing its customers and partners with broadly interoperable, industry leading products,” says Beth White, vice president of marketing for Vixel. “IBM and Vixel continue to deliver stable, scalable and manageable products for high performance storage solutions.”

Vixel’s 9000 Series 2Gb/s Fabric Switches combine best of class performance with a rich feature set. Full compliance with industry interoperability standards and certification under the SANmark Qualification Program mean that Vixel’s 9000 Series are easy to implement in multivendor environments.

Vixel’s 2 Gb/s 9000 Series switches offer users the highest data throughput rates, with full duplex speeds of up to 400 MB/s at each port. The 9000 Series switches support up to 32 switches and 7 hops in multi-layer environments, offering the increased scalability needed for attaining new density levels in large switch meshes. Leveraging the inherent advantages of the architecture of its 7000 series switches, Vixel’s line of 2 Gb/s fabric switches are ideal for large switch meshes, cascading switch environments and joining islands of SANs.
