EVA 8100 Backend speed

I am unable to locate the specifications of the EVA 8100 that shows the speed of the backend of the array.

I thought it had two 2 Gbit fibre arbitrated loops, but I am unable to confirm this.

Does someone have the link that shows this level of specification
thanks

Re: EVA 8100 Backend speed

Simplay stated, it is four 2G arbitrated loops. Half the enclosures use one loop pair and the other half uses the other pair. Since the fibre drives are dual ported, each drive has connectivity via the two loops of one pair. Normally the drives are balanced automatically so half are actively using one loop and the other half use the other loop. In the event of a loop failure, all the drives on that loop pair will use the remaining good loop.
Can you imagine if we used PCs to manage our enterprise systems? ... oops.

You can go to the following page to get this information:

Look in the "technical specifications" section for your answer.

Once it's in production it's all bugs after that.
