SAN Fabric Redesign
A well-configured SAN fabric is the foundation of an enterprise-class storage infrastructure. It comprises fibre cables, switches, routers, and other fibre devices that work in concert to efficiently move data throughout the SAN in an organized fashion. If you are an IT professional preparing for a SAN migration, consolidation, or optimization, then one of your main concerns is the redesign of the fabric.
As your organization’s SAN grows, the fabric must be rebuilt for greater flexibility, performance, and disaster recovery. Based on traditional methods of labor-intensive data collection and analysis, this rebuilding can be a complex, protracted, and error-prone process—one that can threaten the stability of your fabric. SANpulse provides a solution for optimizing and redesigning SAN fabrics.
From the data collected during the discovery and analysis phases, SANpulse services will generate customized reports that offer insights into your current SAN fabric. SANatomy software combined with additional customized fabric information collected by our SANlogics technology engine gives you the ability to thoroughly analyze the various aspects and components of the fabric, such as port utilization, switch configuration, switch utilization, switch ISL connectivity, host connectivity, host paths-to-arrays, array connectivity, and much more. SANpulse software solutions empower you to efficiently plan the layout for your company’s new or expanded fabric.
