ETERNUS Multipath Driver

ETERNUS Multipath Driver supports redundant access paths and load balancing capability between systems for higher operational reliability and greater performance.

Overview

ETERNUS Multipath Driver software achieves high-reliability and performance systems due to multipath connection between storages and servers. Provided in Solaris, Windows and Linux versions.

If a path failure should occur, ETERNUS Mutpath Driver with its path failover function switches access path. This can avoid access stoppage therefore improves system reliability. In addition, further improved system performance is also ensured with the load balancing function using multiple paths.


Notice for AIX version

The sale of ETERNUS Multipath Driver AIX version was terminated in June 2017.
Please use the multipath driver attached to the AIX OS as standard. Installing "ETERNUS DX/AF ODM package for AIX MPIO" is necessary when you use the multipath driver attached to the AIX OS, please download from the page below.

Features

Improves system reliability with redundant paths (Path-failover)

In the event of failure, redundant paths ensure continuous access by switching traffic to the alternate paths avoiding system halt.

Load balancing function provides enhanced system performance

Path bottlenecks can be eliminated by distributing access using multiple access paths concurrently. And this improves system performance.
