Emulex Embeds in Xyratex

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced that its embedded storage bridges have been deployed across Xyratex's RS-1602-F4-SBD storage systems. Xyratex's innovative 4Gb/s SBOD storage solution leverages the

BR-2401 storage bridge from Emulex to create a high performance, modular storage system with the ability to intermix Fibre Channel (FC) and SATA disk drives within the same enclosure.

"Emulex has the industry's only proven FC-to-SATA bridge solution.

Integrating the BR-2401 within Xyratex's 4Gb/s storage systems has created a versatile tiered storage solution for deploying SATA disk drives into existing field-proven FC-based systems," said Bob Whitson, senior vice president and general manager of Embedded Storage Products, Emulex. "This design win signifies the continued adoption of our embedded storage bridges as the most effective method for deploying SATA disk drives within enterprise storage environments."
