Multiprocessor Core Speeds iSCSI Storage Processor Cores

Developed by Ivivity, the iDiSX 2000 runs Linux in its seven MIPS processors to handle highperformance iSCSI and FibreChannel chores. Its range of hardware accelerators minimizes system overhead and moves data quickly through its 10-Gbit/s SPI-4 interfaces.

The iDiSX 2000 handles Fibre Channel, SATA (serial ATA), and SAS (serial attached SCSI) drives, providing access via network interfaces. It can support a range of RAID configurations using software running on the data processors. Also, it can support volume management, mirroring, snapshot, replication, and other features.

The iDiSX 200 costs less than $600.
