Emulex And Brocade Advance End-to-End Gen 5 Fibre Channel SAN Capabilities

FRANKFURT, Germany and COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SNW EUROPE --  Emulex Corporation (NYSE: ELX), a leader in network connectivity, monitoring and management, today announced that the company is working with Brocade, (NASDAQ: BRCD), the leader in data center fabric networking solutions, to improve the reliability, availability, and manageability of Gen 5 Fibre Channel (FC) based storage area networks (SANs) in the enterprise data center and the cloud. Specifically, Emulex and Brocade have worked together to integrate Brocade's ClearLink diagnostics technology into Emulex LightPulse® Gen 5 FC Host Bus Adapters (HBAs).

"As customers migrate mission-critical, private cloud, and flash-accelerated workloads to Gen 5 FC fabrics, performance, quality of service (QoS) and infrastructure reliability become more critical," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex. "ClearLink is the first of the Gen 5 FC capabilities that Emulex will be providing to ensure the reliability and management of storage network configurations when connected to Brocade Gen 5 FC SAN fabrics."

ClearLink Diagnostics

Detecting faults in the physical infrastructure remains challenging and the ability to quickly identify and isolate optics and cable problems can make a significant difference in operational expenditures (OPEX) for both pre-production and production environments.

With ClearLink diagnostics, data centers can identify and isolate optics and cable problems much faster – in a matter of minutes instead of days. For new SAN installations, ClearLink allows administrators to validate that their SANs can operate under full data loads prior to deploying production applications.  

ClearLink diagnostics deliver these capabilities by performing a series of tests on both Brocade Gen 5 FC switches and Emulex Gen 5 FC HBAs. This includes running a series of electrical and optical loopback tests that can detect problems with the physical cabling and optics that could result in increased error rates and intermittent problems.
