INRANGE Technologies today announced that its IN-VSN(TM) FC/9000(TM) Fibre Channel Director has been certified by DataCore(TM) Software Corporation to operate in Storage Area Networks (SAN) with DataCore's SANSymphony(TM) storage virtualization software.
According to INRANGE, the FC/9000 can expand from 24 ports to 128 ports, giving users a high-performance networking infrastructure that makes SAN management and growth easier.
