Overview:

With the QLogic 6100 Series, you can reduce the cost of SAN connectivity, improve ROI on existing SANs, and capture the benefits of storage area networking for the entire enterprise.

  • iSCSI to Fibre Channel connectivity
  • Designed for storage applications that run across WANs
  • Optimized virtualization connectivity with iSCSI
  • Easy SAN connectivity for all servers via iSCSI-to-Fibre Channel routing
  • Low-cost connectivity under $100 per server
  • Manage storage on the SAN, not on multiple servers
  • Migrate easily from DAS to SAN
  • Turns Fibre Channel storage into multi-protocol storage

Universal SAN Connectivity for Storage and Servers.
The QLogic iSR6140 is designed for Universal SAN connectivity between storage and servers via iSCSI to Fibre Channel routing. It sets a new standard for ease-of-use and price/performance value. The iSR6140 offers unparalleled ease of integration, based on the same proven QLogic ASIC technology that powers over 50 million storage products sold by leading storage vendors. The iSR6140 product provides dual 1GB iSCSI ports for connection to the WAN/LAN and dual 2Gb FC ports for connection to the FC SAN. Leading applications for the iSR6140 include:

  • Adding multi-protocol support to FC SAN devices
  • Scaling VMware to SAN connectivity
  • Adding FC SAN access to all servers
  • Optimizing storage for HCP clusters
  • Providing Wide Area Files Services (WAFS) for remote sites
  • Connecting stranded servers to the SAN
  • Connecting remote sites to the SAN

Lowering the Cost of SAN Connectivity.
The iSR6140 is the ideal tool to expand the reach and benefits of your SAN investment across the enterprise. It leverages the low-cost and pervasive infrastructure of Ethernet and supports up to 512 server connections. The iSR6140 leverages native iSCSI drivers provided by all leading OS vendors (Microsoft, Red Hat & SUSE Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX) to bring the benefits of SAN to all servers in the enterprise. The combination of low-cost Ethernet and native iSCSI drivers help drive the cost per server to under $100 per connection.

Virtual Storage Connections for Virtual Servers.
Leading server virtualization products, such as VMware and Xen, need flexible and dynamic storage solutions. QLogic router technology provides virtual iSCSI connections between each server and Fibre Channel storage. As the virtual server environment changes, the iSR6140 provides the ability to dynamically re-allocate and migrate (VMotion) storage resources between virtual servers.

Improving Storage Management, Utilization, and Scalability.
The iSR6140 consolidates data storage onto the SAN, improving storage management utilization and scalability. It is an ideal tool to migrate stand-alone storage to centralized SAN storage, improving utilization.

Features:

  • All Fibre Channel SAN devices can be multi-protocol devices and shared across the enterprise to improve ROI and reduce connection costs without impacting existing SAN architectures.

  • The iSR6140 supports Cluster File Systems to improve the performance, cost, and scalability of HPC storage connectivity. Since the iSR6140 can provide direct block access to SANs, via iSCSI to Fibre Channel (FC) routing, it leverages the cost benefits of Ethernet and provides direct access to SAN data.

  • The iSR6140 reduces the cost of SAN connectivity to under $100 per server. The iSR6140 supports up to 512 server connections and leverages native iSCSI drivers provided by all leading Operating System (OS) vendors to provide high performance, low-cost SAN connectivity to improve application availability, data protection, and migrate stand-alone DAS storage to centralized SAN storage.

  • The iSR6140 can extend SAN benefits across the enterprise at a very low-cost and minimal management overhead.

  • QLogic's advanced install and configuration wizards enable set up in less than 15 minutes and make it simple to manage.

  • The iSR6140 is based on the same proven FC and iSCSI ASIC technology the have powered over 50 million storage products sold by leading storage vendors.
