Helping You Meet the Standard for SRDF and Brocade Data Center Ready

Superna has in-depth technical expertise in storage distance interoperability and wide area networking. We have built a world-class data center facility with a capability to fully test storage network interoperability with EMC SRDF and VPLEX. This facility is used by network equipment manufacturers to qualify their products and undertake performance verification testing during equipment release cycles.  Superna has worked with all the major network and WAN Optimization equipment providers to undertake successful EMC Entrance Criteria testing.  This can result in publication on the EMC Support Matrix or Letters of Support from EMC.  The Superna data center includes EMC storage, VCE Vblocks, servers, Cisco switching fabrics, Brocade and Cisco fibre channel switches, Qlogic systems, optical and ethernet devices, and fibre optics to generate distance.


Superna has a complete EMC test bed to undertake Entrance Criteria for SRDF and provides a storage distance networking qualification and testing solution with event and correlation root-cause software tools.  Unlike the alternative business model that requires equipment manufacturers to invest heavily in infrastructure and personnel, we offer a fully endorsed and rapid qualification service that complies with EMC and Brocade`s standards.

The Brocade Technology Alliance Program is designed to help vendors perform compatibility testing with Brocade products, create applications utilizing the Brocade SMI Agent (SMI-A), and develop a stronger relationship with Brocade.  Superna has many years of hands on interoperability and compatibility testing with Brocade SAN products and offers the following Interoperability by Solution services to  Brocade Technology Partners:
  • Data Center Ready Interop testing for WAN and SAN extension for the Data Center Ready, compatibility matrix; and
  • Data Center Ready testing - Ethernet solutions

Support Beyond Qualification

Superna can also assist with proof of concepts. If you are looking to enhance product capabilities for storage transport or go-to-market activities, we can help with product architecture and design.  We work directly with EMC for SRDF and storage systems, Brocade and Cisco for switching fabrics.
