HP ProLiant SB460c SAN Gateway Storage Server

Do you have a proliferation of NAS devices that you need to consolidate, or tier two applications that would benefit from centralized storage? You need a flexible NAS/SAN gateway that increases the efficiency of your existing infrastructure.

The first internal blade NAS/SAN fusion gateway product available, the HP ProLiant SB460c SAN Gateway Storage Server is a flexible ready to deploy NAS/SAN gateway solution for both enterprise and workgroup SAN environments.

The SB460c SAN Gateway is used to access SAN storage, translating file data from the server into blocks for storage. Centralize file serving onto a SAN to control proliferation of NAS devices while preserving your existing NAS storage investments. Also enables hosting of application (block) storage, using less expensive iSCSI to connect to a SAN infrastructure or HP MSA shared storage using iSCSI over the network, to increase efficiency of your existing infrastructure.
