Marketing Information

The EMC Connectrix DS-5100B offers best-in-class port density and scalability for mid range enterprise SAN switches along with redundant, hot-pluggable components and non-disruptive software upgrades. As the value and volume of business data continue to rise, organizations need technology solutions that are easy to implement and manage, and that can grow and change with minimal disruption. The DS-5100B switch is designed for rapidly growing storage requirements in mission-critical environments combining 4 and 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel technology in configurations of 24, 32, or 40 ports in an efficiently designed 1 U package. As a result, it provides low-cost access to industry-leading SAN technology as well as "pay-as-you-grow" scalability for consolidating storage and maximizing the value of virtual server deployments. The evolutionary design also consumes less than 2.5 watts of power per port for exceptional power and cooling efficiency.
