Studio Network Solutions (SNS) has qualified its Mac OS X Ellipse Enterprise Fibre Channel HBA for use with EMC's CLARiiON family of storage arrays.
The Ellipse Enterprise Fibre Channel HBA delivers the ability for Macintosh servers and workstations to take advantage of the fault tolerant, multipath I/O and failover/failback features in the CLARiiON family of networked storage systems from EMC.
SNS also is making significant advancements with its globalSAN iSCSI Initiator for Mac OS X. The upcoming version 4 of the globalSAN initiator will offer the ability to pair with the Ellipse Enterprise HBA, enabling heterogeneous iSCSI and FC multipathing for the CLARiiON and other arrays. This will provide intelligent failover between redundant Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks and ensure I/O efficiency.For more information, visit www.studionetworksolutions.com.
