Designed to interconnect distant SANs via secure Internet Protocol
IBM System Storage SAN04B-R
multiprotocol router
Efficient package with two active Fibre Channel ports and two Ethernet Internet Protocol ports
Designed for high performance
with 4 Gigabit per second
(Gbps) Fibre Channel (FC) ports
and hardware-assisted traffic
processing for line-rate per-
formance across Ethernet
Internet Protocol (IP) ports
Utilizes existing Internet, IP-
based Metropolitan Area
Network (MAN) or Wide Area
Network (WAN) infrastructures
for metro and global SAN
extension for business
continuity solutions
Highlights
Hardware-based compression,
large window sizes and selec-
tive acknowledgement of IP
packets designed to optimize
performance of SAN extension
over IP networks
Integrated IBM System
Storage™ SAN b-type (Brocade)
switch management helps sim-
plify installation and administra-
tion and helps provide fabric
investment protection
A wide range of IBM System Storage
mid-range and enterprise Storage Area
Network (SAN) infrastructure simplifica-
tion and business continuity solutions
can be created with the IBM System
Storage SAN04B-R multiprotocol
router. Infrastructure simplification solu-
tions for the IBM Power™ Systems and
System x™ family include disaster tol-
erance over metropolitan and global IP
networks with IBM System Storage disk
arrays, tape libraries and IBM Tivoli®
Storage Manager data protection
software.
Local site infrastructure simplification
solutions may be extended to one or
more remote sites for enhanced data
protection and disaster tolerance. The
IBM System Storage SAN04B-R multi-
protocol router provides Fibre Channel
over IP and FCIP Tunneling Service for
distance extension which can enable
cost effective and manageable metro
