PacketLight Intros PL-200
TEL AVIV -- PacketLight Networks Ltd. a leading provider of Storage and Data Connectivity Solutions, announced today that it has released the PL-200, which provides end-to-end FC connectivity and incorporates all the needed functionality for FC transport over current and future IP and Metro Ethernet networks. The PL-200 provides standard based FCIP mapping, IPsec Encryption and hardware based compression within a single 1U box. The PL-200 allows SMBs, enterprises and carriers to efficiently build Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery applications over ubiquitous IP and Ethernet networks.
The PL-200 is designed to offer a new level of cost efficiency for SAN extension over IP and Metro Ethernet network. This solution incorporates a high level of functionality including data compression capabilities that enable better utilization of the link capacity, and reduce the monthly OPEX spending. It allows data encryption with standard base IPSec enabling securing sensitive data over the IP network, which is inherently less secure. The embedded IPSec encryption saves the need for additional external encryption solution. Further advantages of the PL-200 are the low granularity bandwidth policer for fine tuning of the network bandwidth demands and the ability to support a variety of uplink interfaces such as 100Base-T copper, GbE optical SFP to interface the existing infrastructure.
The PL-200 is especially designed to address the SMBs needs such as cutting down the cost of the transport pipe (OPEX), reducing the CAPEX and providing security to the essential organization data, explains Koby Reshef, PacketLights VP of Marketing. Thanks to the PL-200, the connectivity between two storage networks has never been so available and easy to apply for SMBs and enterprises.
