SANBlaze Technology FCoE Emulation System Delivers Line Rate Performance at 10G

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - SANBlaze Technology, Inc., a leading provider of storage emulation systems, today announced a performance enhancement release for its Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) emulation system. The new software release enables full line rate performance across multiple 10G Ethernet emulation ports.

The VirtuaLUN FCoE storage emulator simulates both FCoE targets and initiators with a wide range of configurable attributes. It provides engineers with a flexible, scalable tool to simulate real data center Ethernet and SAN environments, at a fraction of the cost needed for real equipment. This latest release adds high-speed performance testing to the other unique sets of SANBlaze functions applicable in all aspects of a product's lifecycle; from development to design validation, test manufacturing and QA.

Performance scales across the FCoE product offering, with large block Read/Write performance of 2193 Mbytes/sec on a single port, scaling to 8356 Mbytes/sec for a 4 port configuration. The release allows the VirtuaLUN FCoE system to generate 17.5 Gbps of FCoE storage traffic on a single full duplex Ethernet port. These performance gains scale to an impressive 66.6 Gbps when applied to a 4-port product configuration running large block read/write I/O patterns.

The VirtuaLUN FCoE system can be configured with 2 or 4 10G FCoE ports and is available now. Dual media systems, with both FCoE and Fibre Channel ports, are also available in various configurations, allowing for multiple topology and network testing using a single system. In target mode, ports can be configured to present from 1 to 512 virtual targets, emulated disks or tapes, each with configurable sizes, speeds, attributes, errors and profiles. Initiator emulation provides the capability to test scale and run predefined test and performance tests against FCoE targets.
