matrixSCSI switch

TwoOrMore ShareSCSILibrary
Two or more Servers share a SCSI Tape Library

  • Share SCSI Devices between Multiple Hosts to maximise the peripheral investment.
  • Can be used to provide failover or failsafe protection when sharing SCSI RAID or Tape Libraries between an active host and a dormant host.
  • As a low cost alternative to a SAN
  • Use A SCSI Switch to extend the SCSI bus length beyond the 20 M limit
  • Matrix Switches 2X2, 3X2 and 4X2 available
  • 160 Mbytes/sec Bandwidth
  • SCSI busses are totally isolated from each other, re-timed and regenerated, so that they can run the full length in either direction
  • Each Bus segment is individually terminated. LVD busses have multi-mode termination
  • SCSI bus type - LVD, HVD or SE SCSI, or a mixture of these busses in the Switch
  • Choose the method of controlling the Switch - Dynamic Switching, Manual control, control over the Network as a Network device, or Automatic Control via the SCSI bus itself or via a serial bus
  • Bus Switching maintains correct termination, and only occurs at SCSI bus free
  • Suitable for HVD, LVD or SE SCSI, or a mixture of these
  • Rackmount or Desktop versions available
  • Complete hardware-only solution- no software required
