An iSCSI Switch Fabric Rebuild across Ethernet Storage Area Networks (SANs)

Providing a core-to-edge data center solution supporting an Ethernet SAN.

RPI needed to rebuild its iSCSI switch fabric to support the increase in traffic across its Ethernet Storage Area Networks (SANs) and boost its core from Gigabit to 10G.

Extreme Networks provided the company with a core-to-edge data center solution supporting an Ethernet SAN composed of its DCB-enabled switches.

  • RPI has eliminated downtime while increasing performance, where an out-of-service network could result in a considerable loss in orders and labor costs
  • RPI has a much lower total cost of ownership with the Extreme Networks solution compared to the previous infrastructure
  • The Extreme Networks OS makes network management simple, easing the burden for busy staff
