High Availability Storage and Double the
Unlike most other host-based failover implementations,
Cambex’s DPF operates in Active - Active mode to provide the
highest possible storage performance. When configured with a
pair of 2Gb Fibre Channel HBAs, DPF can effectively double
the storage-to-server data bandwidth to 800 MB/s in
full-duplex operation. Enhanced SCSI protocol support
increases SCSI command queue depths to further optimize
Superior Compatibility and Ease Of Use
DPF runs on all IBM pSeries and RS/6000 machines and is
fully compatible with all versions of the IBM AIX operating
system currently supported by IBM. It can utilize both
Cambex and IBM Fibre Channel HBAs giving the user total
flexibility when purchasing Fibre Channel adapters.
Using standard AIX tools, DPF software is easy to install
and use requiring no external consulting or training. The
intelligent auto-discovery feature identifies all current
storage paths upon installation and setup, avoiding any
error-prone click-and-drag configuration requirements.
Detailed information on storage paths and their status is
fully integrated with and displayed at the storage
management console or user interface. Load balancing
parameters for critical LUN paths are easily configured and
changed for reliable, predictable application performance.
