Publisher Description



StarPort fully implements iSCSI, FCoE and ATA-over-Ethernet client side protocols enabling you to connect to remote storage appliances such as disk arrays, tape drives, DVD-ROM image libraries and so on. StarPort connects to iSCSI, FCoE or AoE (ATA-over-Ethernet) storage in the server room or creates a virtual DVD-ROM drive locally to watch movies in a home theatre extending your computing infrastructure.

StarPort''s iSCSI support enables connectivity to remote storage devices over a standard IP network, regardless of where the device resides; in the next room or on another continent. With StarPort and iSCSI you can gain full access to a device, as though the device was installed on a local machine. Re-partition, format a remote hard disk drive with any file system, burn to a remote high-capacity Blu-Ray or HD-DVD burner, implement automatic backup procedures to a remote tape drive, access remote storage devices connected through Serial and Parallel ATA and SCSI, Fibre Channel, USB or FireWire and more.

AoE protocol support provides the same functionality as iSCSI in those environments where ATA-over-Ethernet technology is used. CoRAID produces network storage appliances currently using AoE as the core protocol. AoE delivers a simple, high performance, low cost alternative to iSCSI and FibreChannel for networked block storage by eliminating the processing overhead of TCP/IP. AoE is native in Linux 2.6.11 and beyond. A free open source ATA-over-Ethernet target implementation for Linux called vblade can be downloaded here.

Unsatisfied with the speed of disk I/O operations? Need a fast drive to store Internet Explorer cache files? Use StarPort''s RAM drive emulation which is more than 1000 times faster than your local hard drive. A RAM drive appears to your system and applications as a standard disk volume where you can read and write files. Non longer limited to the hard drives speed, the StarPort RAM drive feature provides amazingly faster speed.
