SANbox 2

QLogics SANbox 2 Fibre Channel switch provides IT managers with a capable midrange switch to build up their next-generation SANs.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // SANbox 2 isnt exceptionally expensive, but the upgrade can be costly for IT managers who want to trade in their current Fibre Channel equipment to get to the higher speeds.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The SANbox 2 should be the fastest storage switch around for the next couple of years, barring a miraculously fast development of 10G-bps Fibre Channel technology.

PROS: Flexible, SANsurfer 2 auto-negotiation capabilities ease network management.

CONS: Complete system upgrade is necessary to tap 2G-bps Fibre Channel speeds.
