iSCSI Booting With SanXfer 3.3 From InQuinox(March 21, 2012)
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/12 -- InQuinox is pleased to announce the 3.3 release of SanXfer. This release incorporates additional customer and partner-driven requirements to support iSCSI booting, wizard visual and usability enhancements, and our latest appliance, the SX3 specifically designed to further simplify server and data migration efforts.
iSCSI booting is now available within SanXfer since smarter Network Controllers have enabled the use of storage and servers in new, more efficient ways.
"SanXfer is the only product that automatically migrates servers into iSCSI booting environments," as stated by Deni Connor, Founding Analyst at Storage Strategies NOW.
Additional agility was added through speed enhancements that further reduce server migration time by improving the core data movement mechanisms, as well as the heuristics used to determine how to best optimize a migration from available resources. SanXfer is dramatically faster.
Another significant enhancement to SanXfer 3.3 is the option to purchase it pre-installed on a hardware appliance. The SX3 appliance is pre-configured to support multiple 1Gbps Ethernet connections and dual 8Gbps Fibre Channel connections. Upgrade options support 10Gbps Ethernet and 16Gbps FC interfaces. The SX3 is available today in either a 2U rack-mount package or a desktop appliance.
"Our consulting partners provided the greatest input with regard to Ease of Use requirements, by directing our efforts to create the SX3 appliance for SanXfer. The SX3 contains enough horsepower to quickly map into existing and new environments thereby enabling migrations from one SAN (FC or iSCSI) to the other," stated company CEO Brad Hargett.
Lastly, SanXfer now includes additional drivers for migrations directly into Cisco UCS platforms. Through the SanXfer 3.3 release, our customers now have the strongest server migration utility to support P2P, P2V, V2P, local-to-SAN booting, FC booting, iSCSI booting, and VM support (VMware, Hyper-V, and Xen). With SanXfer's Data TranXfer option, there is the added benefit of heterogeneous data transfer support.
InQuinox has validated that SanXfer supports all major hardware manufacturers.
InQuinox created SanXfer to dramatically reduce the damage created by error-prone, manual methods for server migration and shorten the time required for migrations through a more intelligent approach. InQuinox consults with data center managers to solve specific data protection, migration and restoration problems. Founded in 2007, InQuinox is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
