GB Labs Connects 25GbE To FastNAS

GB Labs is introducing 25 GbE connectivity to its FastNAS storage systems. “In short, there is no more metaphoric waiting around,” it says.

“The current LC fibre link speed capability is approximately 10 Gb,” explained GB Labs CEO-CTO Dominic Harland. “That may be OK for some, but to take further advantage of the speed and power of what our FastNAS storage already offers, we have connectivity that ascends to 25 GbE, which delivers a proven 2.3 GBytes from server to desktop and is running on LC cables.

“In short, there is no more metaphoric waiting around. In addition, 25 GbE FastNAS can use existing LC fibre channel cabling infrastructures, meaning there are fewer additional technologies to deploy or infrastructure to tear down and rebuild."

The new 25 GbE-enabled FastNAS is built on CORE.4 OS, a custom operating system designed to serve media files with additional intelligence layers that deliver stability and quality of service.

Harland; “CORE.4 turned out to be so powerful that we soon discovered 10 GbE fibre was actually a bottleneck, but no longer. With FastNAS at 25 GbE, users can fully exploit the benefits of 25 GbE, especially for 4K workflows.”

Optional dual-25 GbE port versions are available on most models and is also backward compatible with 10GbE.
