Wasabi Adds 10Gb Ethernet Support to iSCSI SANs

Wasabi Systems is adding 10Gb Ethernet capabilities for its Storage Builder network storage operating system. The 10Gb Ethernet allows users to aggregate storage traffic from multiple servers on a 1 Gbps network into the 10 Gbps capable VMX 2000sx Series iSCSI SAN appliance.

"Although already less expensive than Fibre Channel, we expect that the cost of 10Gb Ethernet will decrease substantially during 2008, leading to widespread adoption in storage and other applications that can benefit from a fat pipe," said Kirk Roller, Wasabi's Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing.
