How We See IT:

A new era of IT networking technology is upon us, and it’s even more important than ever that for your data center to run smoothly and efficiently. Creating an intelligent and fast network fabric is key, and IBM’s system of SAN switches can help you do just that.

Simplified Operation

IBM SAN Switches can help you streamline and simplify your operations, so you can spend time managing other aspects of your business. Fibre Channel Channel connectivity makes the most of data sharing and collaborating collaboration throughout your enterprise. Whether your network extends across the building or across the globe, IBM has a SAN switch to fit your unique infrastructure needs. IBM SAN Switches include universal ports that can determine the port type when connected to a fabric port. Additionally, the switch automatically detects new devices and selects the shortest path within the fabric to ensure your data is moving quickly and efficiently.

Standardized, Simplified Management

IBM SAN Switches are designed to provide seamless Fibre Channel connectivity to a variety of IBM server products. IBM’s extensive offering of storage solutions utilizes policies to move your data to cost-efficient storage. The ports are scalable, so you can grow your infrastructure on-demand as your needs grow on-demand. IBM SAN Switches even work effectively with multiple vendors, so you can continue supporting your existing infrastructure investments.

Safe Storage

As your network grows, so does the threat of a security breach. The Advanced Security Activation Feature extends the basic fabric security and provides an extensive policy-based system to protect your data. If you have a larger network, IBM’s SAN extension products compress and encrypt your data so that it remains safe during the journey from one secure data center environment to the next.
