Xsigo Pushing Data Fabric As ‘Killer’ Product Claims The Register11 June 2012 17:51:00
Virtualisation specialist Xsigo has changed its plan of attack claims The Register’s storage editor Chris Mellor. It’s now focusing on the latest version of its industry renowned server fabric.
The principle of a virtual server fabric is based on virtualising the cables and network adaptors in a data centre environment as the number of servers increases. All the links between servers are virtualised and the solution isn’t locked to any one manufacturer unlike rival solutions.
One company that installed the fabric was independent law firm Farrer & Co. IT ops manager Andy Beech said: “Xsigo Data Centre Fabric enabled [us] to … move away from an inflexible hardwired solution. Prior to Xsigo, each server had direct-attached storage and ran a specific application.”
The latest Data Centre Fabric (DCF) is broken into three components: The Fabric Director, The Fabric Manager and The Fabric Accelerator.
