JNI Corporation today announced that its FibreStar(R) 2 Gb Ready FCE-6460 PCI Fibre Channel host bus adapter has been verified by Brocade Communications Systems Inc. as interoperable with Brocade-based Storage Area Networking (SAN) infrastructure in testing conducted through the Brocade Fabric Aware Program.
"We are pleased that JNI has successfully completed the Fabric Aware testing with Brocade fabric switches in heterogeneous SAN environments," said Jay Kidd, Brocade vice president of product marketing. "Storage area networks are being deployed worldwide at a rapid rate as a scalable, high performance networking foundation for storage environments. End users are implementing large fabric SANs comprising hundreds of storage subsystems, servers, and networking technologies, all from multiple vendors. The Fabric Aware program is an example of our continued investment in delivering end-to-end SAN interoperability to our partners and their customers."
The company said the program is a comprehensive testing and configuration initiative designed to foster end-to-end SAN interoperability in multi-vendor Brocade-based SAN environments. Testing was conducted at the Brocade interoperability labs. The Brocade Fabric Aware Program has added more than 40 partners since its launch in 2000.
