Lucent to Use Vixel's Technologyin New Storage Applications
May 2000
BOTHELL, Wash., May 4 -- Vixel Corp. reported that Lucent Technologies will integrate Vixel's Fibre Channel switching technology into Lucent's OptiStar product line. Vixel said its technology will help Lucent create solutions to interconnect storage area networks (SANs) over high performance, IP-based wide area networks (WANs).
According to Vixel, a high-speed SAN-to-SAN connection will allow enterprises to receive applications such as disaster recovery, remote backup and dynamic data replication, as well as enterprise server and storage consolidation.
By integrating Vixel's Fibre Channel switching technology directly into our WAN access solutions, Lucent can help eliminate the bandwidth bottleneck created by traditional routed architectures, and extend the SAN beyond the campus and into the high-speed optical WAN network, said Tim Sullivan, vice president and general manager of Lucent's Optical Area Networking group.
