Littleton, MA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
SANBlaze Technology, Inc., a pioneer in storage emulation systems, today announced support for Emulex 16Gb Fibre Channel (16GFC) Adapters.
SANBlaze VirtuaLUN™ Storage Emulation Systems provides a means to test and exercise SAN hardware and software products with thousands of high performance simulated disks, or hundreds of emulated hosts, saving the expense of populating a test environment with real, expensive hardware. SANBlaze systems are widely deployed and an invaluable tool for storage development, test and QA labs.
Emulex's latest 16GFC technology delivers up to 1.2 million IOPS on a single port, enabling its LightPulse® HBAs to meet the needs of today's performance hungry applications. The architecture enables all resources to be applied to any port that needs it, ensuring SLAs are met.
For 16GFC development, manufacturing and QA requirements, SANBlaze Emulation software solutions can now be deployed utilizing the Emulex 16GFC HBAs.
“The ability to support Emulex 16GFC HBAs enables us to meet the needs of storage developers increasing adoption of 16GFC,” said Mitul Patel, SANBlaze Emulation Product Manager. “Supporting Emulex 16G HBAs allows SANBlaze emulation customers more options for deployment, providing increased performance and interoperability alternatives."
The VirtuaLUN features an easy-to-use, web-based interface enabling easy configuration of storage devices, re-configuration, error injection, performance testing and monitoring. It features an extensive Command Line Interface, intricate scripting capabilities and XML interfaces allowing it to be easily integrated into multifunction test environments. In addition to Fibre Channel, SANBlaze emulation solutions are available for FCoE, SAS and iSCSI.
