CNS4-FC: 4-slot Network Attached Storage
Modern Storage Solution for Fibre Channel Platforms
The Compact Network Storage 4-Slot - Fibre Channel (CNS4-FC) is the perfect storage solution for programs looking to modernize systems using legacy Fibre Channel (FC) or Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) drives. Providing many of the benefits provided by the CNS4, the CNS4-FC brings newly added support for FC protocol plus other network protocols like Network File Server (NFS), Common Internet File System (CIFS), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) making it ideal for sharing critical data in a deployed network for mission platforms that were developed with sensors utilizing FC as the protocol.
Replace Obsolete FC Disks
Many programs today are using sensor and other ISR equipment that were originally developed and qualified to be used with FC interfaces. Mission sensors act like FC initiators sending data when needed to an FC target. With FC disks going end-of-life years ago, the target disks for mission sensors have become unobtainable, placing the future of the programs in potential jeopardy. The CNS4-FC replaces these old FC disks by acting like an FC target, allowing the investment in existing, qualified FC sensor to be saved and used for longer duration.
