Storage Solution for VI3 has Emulex and Cisco baked in!

Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced a tested storage networking solution combining Emulex and Cisco technology for VMware virtualized server environments. The solution, which combines Emulex LightPulse(r) 4Gb/s host bus adapters (HBAs) with the Cisco MDS family of Fibre Channel switches, provides customers with the functionality to maintain SAN best practices, along with improved Quality of Service (QoS), data protection, and chargeback capabilities.

This solution allows end users to effectively 'virtualize' the SAN connection such that each virtual machine has independent access to its own protected storage ensuring greater storage security and enhanced management and migration of virtual machines. To help customers deploy the solution, Emulex, Cisco and VMware created a Solution Guide that provides data center users with practical use cases and deployment scenarios for maximizing and understanding the benefits of N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) technology within a VMware environment.
