Gadzoox Networks Propels Next Wave of Storage Networking

Standards-Based and Ultra-Fast, Gadzoox Networks 2 Gb Fibre Channel Fabric

Switch Signals Transition to Third Generation of Storage Networking



Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Gadzoox Networks, Inc.

    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ --
 Gadzoox Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:   ZOOX), a supplier of intelligent Storage
 Networking products, today announced Slingshot 4218, a 2 Gigabit (Gb) open
 fabric Storage Area Network (SAN) switch that signals the transition to the
 third generation of Storage Networking.  The Slingshot 4218, the first member
 of the Slingshot family to be announced, doubles the speed of current SAN
 switches, boasts advanced functions, and is based on new open fabric standards
 that enable full interoperability within new and existing storage networks.
     The Slingshot 4218 fully supports new open fabric standards that for the
 first time will allow users to build a heterogeneous SAN fabric.  One of the
 new standards, FC-SW-2, which includes the FSPF routing protocol, enables
 switches from different vendors to work together to route data and share
 management information.  This gives customers the freedom to choose
 best-of-breed products without being tied to a single vendor or proprietary
 technology.  The new management standards also enable customers to efficiently
 manage their storage network.  The overall benefit to customers of this new
 generation is a reduction in the total cost of ownership associated with SANs.
     The need for speed in the storage network is being fueled by the rapid
 increase in electronic data that needs to be quickly stored, accessed,
 allocated and shared.  The introduction of the Slingshot 4218 enables
 customers to build a complete 2 Gb SAN infrastructure and boost performance in
 their business-critical applications, such as online transaction processing
 (OLTP), high-availability clusters and back-up and restore.  Data-intensive
 industries, such as insurance, medical, and video and audio production can
 leverage the higher speed for their day-to-day data requirements, while other
 industries, including storage service providers (SSPs) and Internet service
 providers (ISPs), can use Slingshot to double the bandwidth at a fraction of
 the cost of current 1 Gb switches.
     "We're expecting sales of Fibre Channel fabric switches to surpass
 $1 billion in 2003," said Eric Sheppard, research analyst with IDC.  "With
 2 Gb products hitting the streets this year, its likely that the majority of
 this $1 billion will be switches with 2 Gb capabilities."
     Storage Networking has had three distinct evolutionary stages.  The first
 generation included 1 Gb loop devices, primarily hubs and low-cost switches.
 The current, second generation includes 1 Gb proprietary fabric devices.  The
 new, third generation, ushered in by Slingshot 4218, will be based on open
 fabric standards and faster speeds.  This latest stage of storage networks
 addresses the key concerns among end users:  maturity of Fibre Channel
 standards, storage network interoperability, management, and ownership costs.
 Gadzoox Networks takes the additional step of assuring legacy connectivity to
 older fabric switches.  As proof of this new generation of open fabric
 standards and interoperability, heterogeneous multi-vendor switching will be
 demonstrated at the Storage Networking World conference in Palm Desert from
 April 9-11, 2001.
 
     Product Highlights
     In addition to blazing speed, Slingshot touts an unprecedented 18 ports in
 a one unit (1U) form factor, a non-blocking architecture, auto-sensing ports
 for both loop and fabric, automatic speed negotiation between 1 Gb and 2 Gb on
 a port-by-port basis, and load sharing trunks.
 
     -- 2 Gb speed enables users to meet the requirements of high-performance
        applications
     -- 2 Gb speed also permits IT administrators to reduce the number of
        connections between switches required to provide end-to-end bandwidth,
        freeing up ports to connect to servers and storage devices
     -- 18 ports in a slim 1U form-factor offers the industry's highest port
        density, addressing the increasing issue of space constraints in branch
        offices, data centers, and service providers
     -- Support for fabric and loop protocols at 1 Gb and 2 Gb speeds ensures
        backward and forward compatibility to protect existing systems while
        allowing for migration to the next generation of Fibre Channel products
     -- Auto-sensing ports and automatic speed negotiation simplify
        installation and ongoing management of Storage Networks
     -- Load sharing trunks enable the user to flexibly increase bandwidth
        between switches, making the Slingshot 4218 an ideal switch for the
        core of an enterprise SAN
 
     "The Slingshot, at twice the bandwidth and half the cost per port,
 instantly becomes the price/performance leader for Fibre Channel switches.
 This is just the kind of offensive move we've been hoping for, and we think it
 will be good for the whole industry," said Steve Duplessie, founder and senior
 analyst, Enterprise Storage Group.
 
     Broad Industry Support

     Fibre Channel as Today's Preferred Transport
     With development started in 1988, and ANSI standard approval in 1994,
 Fibre Channel has emerged as a mature and reliable transport mechanism for
 gigabit communications, and has paved the way for 2 Gb data delivery.  Fibre
 Channel allows concurrent communications among workstations, mainframes,
 servers, data storage systems, and other peripherals using SCSI and IP
 protocols.  It provides interconnect systems for multiple topologies that can
 scale to a total system bandwidth on the order of a terabit per second.
 Overall, Fibre Channel delivers a new level of speed, distance, reliability
 and throughput for switches, hubs, storage systems, storage devices, and
 adapters, providing the ability to implement a total system solution.
