Maximise VMware Investment with BRidgeIT, Bringing iSCSI Simplicity Whilst Sweating Fibre Channel Assets

BOULDER, Colorado and CHRISTCHURCH, England, August 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


Bridgeworks, innovator and provider of the world's largest family of storage gateways and bridges, announces the release of the Oresund EFC402200 40Gb iSCSI to Fibre Channel Storage Gateway, the world's first. Building on the success and customer demand for the Oresund EFC102200 10Gb iSCSI to Fibre Channel Storage Gateway, coupled with the falling prices for 40Gb within the Data Centre, Bridgeworks enables organisation to capitalise on the next level of performance without reconfiguring the underlying Fibre Channel infrastructure.

Many organisations made a Fibre Channel decision, however with the implementation of VMware (or Hyper V) the installation, quoting VMware, is "difficult" requiring constant rezoning and rerouting. Blogs are full of comments regarding organisations wishing they had a dual strategy but due to investment in Fibre Channel equipment existing assets cannot be jettisoned.

The Oresund Gateways solve this business dilemma, simply.

An easy 15 minute install of an Oresund Gateway, allows organisations to continue to sweat their existing Fibre Channel environment while reaping the benefits of iSCSI in a VMware environment. In simple terms the Fibre Channel environment works as if it were iSCSI, removing the inhibitors and providing price performance, failover capability, ease of administration, agility, performance and an excellent migration strategy.  The Oresund Gateways are non-intrusive therefore there is no disruption, no blackout during data transition and no procedural change.

The investment into virtualisation normally is justified on the grounds of a reduction in capital and operational expenditure, lowering the environmental footprint along with providing high availability for Disaster Recovery. The Oresund Gateway compliments those ideals, allowing organisations to leverage the value of virtualization with their existing investment in Fibre Channel.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
