Nomadic SAN Router with Fibre Channel and Gigabit connectivity for high-bandwidth storage, ideal for high speed SAN and NAS storage
GVS Nomadic SAN Router is the next generation of multi-protocol storage solutions. It delivers multi-vendor, multi-protocol connectivity within the data center and beyond. The Nomadic supports industry standard protocols such as iSCSI, iFCP and E_Port and can be used for SAN island integration, business continuance/disaster recovery planning, storage consolidation, remote tape vaulting, content distribution and iSCSI access to Fibre Channel storage.
  • FC, Ethernet, iSCSI and iFCP connectivity
  • Broadest range of E-Port interoperability with multi-vendor fabrics
  • True FC routing for maximum scalability and fault isolation
  • Compression to lower WAN bandwidth costs
  • Fast Write technology maximizes throughput across long distances
  • Offers both Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet connectivity
  • Port Count:  12-256 FC and 4 GE 24-256 SAN Routing Ports
  • Port Density:  16 in 1.66in.
  • Height:  1.66in (42.2mm)
