iSCSI Bridge Solutions
One of the fastest and most cost-effective iSCSI bridge solutions available, the iS500 Bridge Family can be used to locate parallel SCSI storage at any distance via an Ethernet port using iSCSI protocol.

If you have an IP SAN (Internet Protocol Storage Area Network), Paralan's iS500 Family of iSCSI Bridges will easily connect your parallel SCSI devices to an IP SAN and merge “Direct Attached Storage” (DAS) systems and devices into networked iSCSI storage environments.

If you do not have a SAN, Paralan's iS500 Family of iSCSI Bridges will easily and inexpensively locate storage and backup SCSI devices anywhere for disaster recovery or remote backup - yards, meters, kilometers, or miles - the distance is unlimited!

The iS500 Family is available in three form factors:

Each Paralan iS500 Bridge boasts the following exceptional features:

Built-in Graphical Interface addressable by any web browser through the Gigabit Ethernet port.Easy installation including self-contained initial IP address and the capability to be used in DHCP over TCP/IP environments.Automatically detects every parallel SCSI device connected to the 68-pin SCSI interface upon power up. Field upgradeable to adapt to future expansions of the iSCSI specifications, and compliant with iSCSI and SCSI interface standards. At-a-Glance status LEDs for SCSI Bus Activity, Self Diagnostics, Power, Gigabit Ethernet Link Status and Gigabit Ethernet Activity. Utilizes a dedicated 833 MHz 32-bit processor for maximum iSCSI and SCSI throughput. Embedded Adaptec Ultra160 SCSI controller chip providing state of the art, reliable control of all SCSI devices. The iS500 Series supports LVD/MSE and HVD SCSI.

In addition, the iS500 Family includes the following features:

  • Transparent to S/W, H/W and Operator
  • Ultra160 LVD and HVD Models
  • Plug and Go Installation
  • Supports all SCSI Device Types
  • FCC, UL, cUL, CE Compliant
