Inter-VSAN routing FCIP for remote SAN extension

Enable data to transit virtual storage area network (VSAN) boundaries while maintaining control plane isolation, thereby maintaining fabric stability and availability with inter-VSAN routing Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) for remote SAN extension.

I/O Accelerator Services

Significantly improve application performance when storage traffic is extended across long distances.

Robust network security

Protect highly sensitive data crossing the enterprise network with smart zoning, intelligent packet inspection and extended zoning capabilities.

Advanced FICON services

Support FICON environments, including cascaded FICON fabrics, VSAN-enabled intermix of mainframe and open systems environments, and N-port ID virtualization (NPIV) for mainframe Linux partitions.
