  • GUI Interface

The EFC2200 iSCSI to Fibre Channel Bridge is a high performance protocol bridge for connecting iSCSI based Servers to Fibre Channel enabled peripherals such as Disks, Tape Drives, Tape Libraries and Optical devices.

The EFC2200 is housed in an industry standard 1U 19” rack mount enclosure with integral power supplies and cooling.  Connectivity to the IP Network is via 2 auto-sensing 1Gb Ethernet ports that can detect the network connection speed, whilst the Fibre Channel Network is connected via 2 4Gb auto-sensing ports.

Managing and installing the EFC2200 could not be easier with its inbuilt intuitive GUI that is easy to use and provides the user with on screen help where necessary.

Key Advantages

Total Flexibility The need to have separate peripherals for both iSCSI and Fibre Channels SANs no longer applies when deploying the EFC2200. With the EFC2200, any Fibre Channel device can be accessed from the iSCSI SAN appearing as though it was part of the iSCSI SAN.

The EFC2200 has many unique features to maximise performance and ensure your data is transferred to the peripheral devices in the shortest possible
time. With its load balancing MPIO* enabled Ethernet ports and two 4Gb Fibre Channel ports in combination with its unique non-blocking data cache
module the EFC2200 provides industry leading performance.
Ensuring that your data reaches its final destination is important these days with tight backup windows. With Error Recovery Level 2 support, the EFC2200 can continue to receive data even if one of the Ethernet connections is disconnected.
Ease of Use
With every increasing pressure on IT staff, there is less time to spend on learning and managing new products and therefore, it is critical that new products are intuitive and easy to use. Avax works closely with its customers to ensure this is always the case. 
The EFC2200 uses the latest power supply technologies with typical efficiencies of 95%, which minimise electrical power consumption and heat output.
