Since I work on the Brocade SAN Test team within IBM, I thought I would share the products I’ve been testing with my readers.
The first product is a new director class switch. It is known as the IBM TotalStorage SAN256B (2109-M48). This is a 4Gbps industry-standard Fibre Channel switch capable of 256 ports in a single domain. The second product is a new fabric switch. It is known as the IBM TotalStorage SAN16B-2 (2005-B16). This switch also supports 4Gbps and is scalable to 16 total ports. This smaller switch is intended for use in small to medium-sized SANs.
