Storage

There are many applications for storage in Enterprise and Data Center environments, ranging from local hard drives and SSDs connected with NVMe or SAS/SATA ... to large fabric SANs (Storage Area Networks) supporting large, high reliability disc aggregation connected with Fibre Channel or Ethernet. Link distances for SAN fabrics are often shorter than seen with conventional networking, but remotely located mirror sites and campus interconnects require a small percentage of longer links, as well. Storage network fabrics have historically required “five nines” uptime (99.99999%) and long mission life, with multi-generational interoperability support a must. 

Comprehensive Portfolio

Comprehensive Portfolio

Storage Fabrics often use multiple generations of interconnect media for fabric networks, based on timing, performance & economics. A robust portfolio, from copper to single mode, enables FIT to service the entire SAN. 

High Performance

High Performance

Compliance to industry standards and multisource agreements are a must for Storage applications. In cases where additional performance is needed, FIT is a great partner for discussing your needs. 

High Reliability

High Reliability

Longevity and reliability are important value propositions for Storage applications, to meet Five Nines uptime and Ten Year mission life metrics. FIT optical product quality and reliability continue to be world class. 

Predictability and Stability

Predictability and Stability

FIT has over 40 years of continuous experience in optical communications, with a legacy of HP, Lucent, Agilent and Avago [the team introduced its first optical transceiver in 1978 and hasn’t slowed down since]. 

Standards and MSA Support

Standards and MSA Support

FIT’s optical team has strongly supported Fibre Channel T11 standard and SFF form factor development since the 1990’s. We understand SAN interconnect, speed negotiation and the performance expectations of high end storage. 

High Volume Production
