As mid-range and enterprise businesses grow and deploy physical/virtual servers and storage arrays, the amount of information required to manage, share, and protect continues to grow. The HP StorageWorks MPX200 Multifunction Router extends the FC SAN investment with integrated multi-protocol support, allowing customers to incorporate iSCSI servers without requiring additional storage arrays or management costs. MPX 200's enterprise-class high-availability design provides dual hot-plug power supplies and router blades for no single point of failure. MPX200 integrated in same rack allows customers to connect up to 4 EVA to a single MPX200 reducing the complexity and cost of iSCSI connectivity to EVA storage arrays.
Easy virtual machines deployment
The MPX200 Multifunction router allows easy deployment of virtual machines. This ensures that BC/CA management policies can be seamlessly maintained throughout the VM deployment.
By connecting hundreds of virtual or physical machines via native iSCSI initiators to the EVA, the MPX200 enables simple, secure and cost-effective storage consolidation and server deployment.
