ATTO Technology has announced the availability of a range of Fibre Channel SAN Kits providing the components needed to update existing direct-attached storage to a high-performance, low-latency storage area network providing the opportunity to centrally locate storage and improve overall performance by adding a storage area network (SAN) solution.
The ATTO Fibre Channel SAN Kits provide the ability to convert direct-attached SAS RAID, JBOD or JBOF storage to SAN technology for environments experiencing slow host-to-host data transfers. It also provides a fast method to perform live migrations in virtual environments such as VMware vSphere, along with redundancy for rapid virtual machine restarts in the event of a host or storage failure.
