SAN Valley Systems announced that storage networking vendors have joined forces with them to demonstrate interoperability with the SAN Valley SL1000 IP-SAN Gateway. The SL1000, which is scheduled for production release in July and will be generally available this summer, is the first of SAN Valley's IP Storage connectivity solutions.

The 8-port SL1000 provides four channels of high throughput Fibre Channel to Internet Protocol (FCIP) encapsulation supporting Quality of Service (QoS), traffic shaping and flow control. SAN Valley's intellectual property enables connectivity that supports wire speed transmission of storage data across distances of up to 400 km. The SL1000 broadens the benefits of a Storage Area Network (SAN) by interconnecting SAN resources across metropolitan and wide area networks (MAN/WAN).

At Networld+Interop, May 8-10, SAN Valley will demonstrate the Compaq SANworks Data Replication Manager, LuxN WavSystem optical access services platform, and ADIC Scalar 1000 automated tape library with the SAN Valley SL1000 IP-SAN Gateway. SAN Valley will be exhibiting in the Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA) booth. Demonstrations will highlight the enabling IP-SAN technology of the SL1000 to perform high-performance disaster recovery, content distribution, backup and restore capabilities.

SAN Valley and Compaq will demonstrate how customers can interconnect their SANs across IP at wire-speeds for disaster recovery and business continuance. Compaq SANworks Data Replication Manager (DRM) enables customers to replicate data online from local to remote StorageWorks systems over switched Fibre Channel fabrics. DRM gives customers the assurance of data protection and business continuance under adverse conditions.

SAN Valley and LuxN will demonstrate real-time content streamed from storage through a SAN at wire-speeds across a fiber network. The SAN Valley SL1000 and the LuxN WavSystem optical access service platform, will demonstrate how customers can deploy content delivery across a fully managed Metropolitan Area Network (MAN).

SAN Valley and ADIC will demonstrate tape back up and recovery across IP infrastructures. ADIC's Scalar 1000 enables customers to achieve maximum performance, reliability, and serviceability in Fibre Channel SANs.
