The physical interface through which storage devices, hosts, loops, and fabrics are connected. Common port identifiers include: F_Port for a port which provides a point-to-point connection between devices on a Fibre Channel SAN; N_Port for the end-point (a server or storage node) in a Fibre Channel fabric; E_Port for an expansion port, which is used to connect one switch to another switch; NL_Port for a node loop port, which is the end-point in an arbitrated loop (it connects a node to the loop); and FL_Port for a fabric loop port, which connects nodes (such as NL_Ports) that do not reside on the same loop.
Disk archives that combine object storage with industry-leading erasure code to deliver maximum availability.
Industry's first virtual deduplication appliances for protecting virtual and physical servers using a software-only device—perfect for remote offices.
Scalable disk-backup and replication appliances featuring variable-length deduplication for maximum data reduction and highest value—all powered by StorNext 5.
When traditional RAID can't meet demands for petabyte-scale capacity with both high reliability and fast access, the answer is object storage.
Enterprise deduplication appliances with the power and performance needed for data centers, multi-site installations, and cloud environments.
Durable online storage that scales more economically than primary storage with better performance than tape.
Scalable, high-performance shared storage powered by StorNext for collaborative workflows.
Easy and cost-effective on-demand access to cloud storage for increased flexibility, protection, and availability.
Variable-length deduplication typically reduces disk backup capacity by more than 90% and allows existing networks to be used for automated DR protection.
